90% Knitting – Episode 359 – Nesting

Thanks for watching Episode 359! Below, you’ll find show notes with embedded time stamps and links to project pages, patterns, and other things I’ve mentioned. I use non-Ravelry links when possible, but any link preceded by an asterisk means that it does go to Ravelry, so be aware of that if Rav is not an accessible place for you. All of my contact/website/social media info is listed at the end of the show notes!

51:19 – 10% – What’s bringing me joy this week!Nesting–my morning time after Bill starts work, and I bring my coffee into the bedroom, lighting a candle, and gather together projects, books, my drawing supplies, music, and whatever else I’m feeling drawn to at the time, and I take those first couple of hours of the day to do what brings me joy and helps me get my day off to a good start. I wish you the opportunity to find small ways to bring joy to the beginning of your morning too, even if it’s just for a few minutes! (Some days, I’m lucky if I get a few minutes, but on the days that I can spend an hour or two, I take advantage of it! :))
