Don’t sweat the small stuff … and it’s all small stuff, is a book I read early in my career. The advice was sound and it dovetailed with my experiences as a cancer survivor. Today’s adventure will be going against the aforementioned advice to look at a macro photography view of this Ball of Yarn. Small stuff indeed!

Actually, these are two different balls. One is currently morphing into a sweater, and the other has aspirations to become a hat, when it grows up. Joy tries to work on one knitting project at a time, but always plans for future adventures in the land of yarn.

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it. ~ Ferris Bueller.

Life can move pretty fast. It is easy to get caught up in the manic pace our culture dictates for us. Yarn slows things down. No matter if it is a long detailed story, or a ball made from woven strands of sheep’s fur.

One notable exception was when puppy Murphy grabbed the end ball attached to a scarf Joy had been toiling over. That yarn moved pretty fast. Wrapped around banisters, table legs, furniture, down 3 stories, and out the dog door in the basement. Murphy almost didn’t make it to his second birthday. Luckily, cooler heads prevailed.

Take Farris’s advice, find an activity that brings you joy, slow down, believe in yourself, and know that you are enough.  Happy Murphy-Cam!
