It's been WAY too long! There have been times over the past month that I wanted to write...in fact, needed to write. But, with any lengthy absence, it's hard to figure out where to start.
Should I write about what was on my mind?
Should I write a "catch-up" post first?
Should I bullet-point what's been happening?
And the longer it took me to decide, the longer I went without posting, the harder it was to restart. But, then a friend asked me if I planned to be "off-radar" for much longer. Seemed there's been something missing.
Fred and I were at the movies on Thursday and ran into Nick afterwards. Funny thing was, I'd been thinking about sending him a text asking if he was at work. Before I had the chance to act on my idea, he walk out of his "office" and took us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the movie theater.
Fred paid close attention as Nick showed us how he was preparing a movie that opens this weekend for viewing. The movie comes in on multiple reels and has to be spliced into one continuous reel. 15 inches of film equals one second of movie time!
It was amazing to see how it all works. Not at all like I've seen in the movies! (Thanks Nick!!)
Why do I share behind-the-scenes at the theater with you on my "knitting blog"? Well, because I needed to start writing again and Nick gave me material to write about. To write about "something" without worrying about what I "should" be writing about. Over the near future, I'll catch up on some of what we've been up to (mainly because I have photos) as well as cool things to share. For tonight, this is what you get because a girl needs to start somewhere.
And, as far as knitting is concerned, there are some completed projects. However, amazingly, socks continue to avoid my needles. I keep thinking about starting something, but have some kind of "block" that prevents me from just diving in and just getting started.
That's when a post on Facebook caught my eye. I volunteered to test-knit for someone. I won't be able to talk about it here. However, I'm sure that being assigned the task of knitting one sock within seven days may very well be the jump-start that my sock knitting needs! That'll begin this coming week. Gotta start somewhere!!
