Last night, after the 7th night of lying awake worrying about things beyond my control, I decided to make two lists:  Things I Can Control, Things I Can’t Control.  I don’t know about you, but making lists always makes me feel like I have a handle on my life and that I’m moving forward, one item at a time (especially if it’s a list where I can cross things off).  So in my realm of “things I can control,” I firmly placed “anxiety.”  To that end, two activities nestled into place:  daily knitting and coloring.  I know many people are coloring, but it wasn’t until “I Dream of Yarn,” A Knit and Crochet Coloring Book, crossed my doorsteps that I thought, “perfect.”  Sometimes knitting or crocheting is just beyond my energy level, but coloring?  I can curl up with a new box of crayons and a new illustration for a few restful moments.  And if I can’t still my mind, the sound of snapped crayons might just ease the tension.
