Feeling Better

I want to start this particular post by thanking all of you who left comments on my last post. I'm doing lots better now. I've been reading a couple of good books about how to talk to yourself in the positive instead of the negative and it really helps my attitude. I still have lots to learn, but I'm on the right track.

On a lighter note, here is the "so far so good" shot of my sock in progress. I'll be turning the heel next, when I actually pick it up again. Can't read and knit at the same time very well, and I have 2 books to read, well 1 and 2/3's since I've read at least 1/3 of the first book.

I really thought I had more to say, but I guess I didn't! Hmmm.... I must be processing what I've read so far or something. OH well, maybe it'll come to me later.

OH yeah, I found the other balls of this yarn. Where? In the place I keep my sock yarn, duh, I just didn't think it'd be on the bottom for some reason. I probably put it down there to hide it from myself so I wouldn't think about how many times I tried to knit with it on my cruise. Wow just "voicing" and I started clenching my teeth, I think I have some tension about that, ya think? dang -- cleansing breath and let it go. I think I'll go and figure that one out! ttyl!

I've got to have a talk with my mom about being more positive, really trying to be positive is a good way to feel better. A magazine, close to your and my heart, one that currently comes out monthly, recommends each day, at the end of the day writing down 3 positive things about that day or your life in general. I think thats a great idea. I know I feel better if I try to find the positive things both about myself and about life and others instead of always thinking of the negative, because thinking of the negative is sure a whole lot easier. So we have to fight the path of least resistence and focus on the positive!

I think your sock looks great! I love the colorway, and I also like the sock in the grass for the photo! :-))

Good job on finding the rest of the yarn. My mum (ever helpful) always says you find what you're looking for in the last place you look. Yeah, thanks!
I hope this socks fits better than the last one.
