I’m sitting at the computer right now, but all I really want to do is sit outside in the sun and work on a shawl I’m knitting. Alas, work obligations are preventing that.

There is a certain joy to the things we do without outside obligations: buying a present for someone just because, making a fancy dinner because you feel like it, and knitting or crocheting whatever you please.

At the recent TNNA trade show, I won a gift basket that included the most gorgeous skein of yarn. It’s Trinity Worsted from Sweet Georgia in the Cherry Blossom colorway. 70% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Silk – 100% YUMM. This particular colorway has bright pink that merges into a deep pink and dark brown that lightens into bits of cream. I. Love. It.

I’ve wound it up into a center-pull ball, and I’m just waiting for inspiration to strike. I can make whatever I like- no obligations.

Do you have a no-obligation project? Something you’re making just because you feel like it?
