It may seem like I’m knitting every waking moment, but I’m not. Honestly. Even if I was, this blog community would say bravo! I do have another sock off the needles. This is the Dale yarn color 603. 48 stitches cast on size 1 needles. Top down. The colors are very fun to watch emerge. I’m onto the second sock. The yarn is not particularly soft. I get the feeling these socks would stand up on their own.
I have a goal today. To keep my mouth shut and be a listener. We have a Board meeting tonight and the topic is something I have no real knowledge about. So? You’d think I’d be able to sit quietly and just listen, but it is not my nature. Today, I vow to be a fantastic listener. Hold me accountable. I plan to be engaged as a listener. I want to hear the opinions and try not to judge them right away. It is not that I don’t think my opinions are valuable or I want to be meek, (that’s not even possible if you know me) it is more about growing as a listener because the topics are not something I can speak to. I want to give the floor to others to speak passionately and honor them by listening.
Being a Board Member has been a huge learning experience for me. It is my way of being involved in this world in a small way. Of giving back during my retirement.
What’s your best advice for me ladies?
