What do I want to do when I grow up?

Lately, I've been under the impression that the only thing that I'm good at is my knitting. Myself, I am a hard working junior who will be seventeen in just two weeks. I get okay grades, typically B+ to As, and I'm well involved in school. I'm a bit of theatre geek, I do school dance, and I'm a part of many clubs. College is looming around the corner, and needless to say, I'm terrified. I feel like everyone should know by know what they aspire to be when they're older, but if you ask me, you're only going to get the vaguest of a description: something to do with English. I don't know what I want to be, and often I don't even feel like I'm adequate in writing. But, I love to knit. If only that could be my career.
Then, I got the idea to make this blog. I just thought that maybe, if I can combine the two, writing and knitting, I won't feel so bad about not knowing what I want to do with my life. And maybe, it'll help me decide.

Right now I'm working overtime on the holiday knitting. On my needles, I have a paw print dishcloth, which is a part of a set of dishcloths for my grandma. My mom is getting some too.
So far, I have knit:

  • A hat, for my grandma
  • a cowl, for my mom
  • another hat, for my dad
  • three dishcloths
I hope to knit four more dishcloths after I finish this one. Hand warmers for my mom are currently on needles. I'm thinking a couple ornaments for stocking stuffers, and I need to knit something for Ed, my mom's boyfriend. And maybe, if I get around to it, I'll knit up a stuffed animal for my cousin.
The best wishes to you, and for me! I'm not usually very good at keeping up with things, mind you.
