I’ve been trying to do some WIP-busting lately, as well as tossing some new projects into the mix.
I’ve revived the Glorianna from hibernation. The project gnome that was hassling me the first time I began this scarf – causing me to frog again and again for stupid mistakes – seems to have lost interest. Sometimes one has to just put a project aside for a while. Glorianna has waited patiently for almost a year. But now she’s back in all her royal purple glory, and I love how she looks so far!
My op art blanket is the current travelling project – easy to pull out on the bus or train and it doesn’t matter where I start or stop.
My first attempt at two-at-a-time toe up socks is also out of hibernation. I’m now trying to figure out how I do the heels…will keep you updated about that. I love the diagonal stripes in the patterned yarn…
I joined this month’s Cowl KAL – try saying that 5 times fast. (KAL = Knit-A-Long) We’re doing Vent d’est vent d’ouest . (Translation: East wind, West wind.) Lace, of course.
It’s going very quickly, and it’s a fun pattern to knit. Can’t wait until it’s cold enough for cowls!
The Sagrantino is moving along, hexagon by hexagon. The Luna Moth shawl is waiting until I find the rest of the yarn that is *ahem* hiding somewhere in my stash (*sigh*). There have been more projects in between all of the above, I will give them their own space later.
Today’s mitzvah (and the reason this post is so late today): Gave a listening ear to the taxi driver who drove me home tonight. During the drive, and then off the meter when we arrived. He’s struggling with a mom in hospital in the terminal stages of cancer, and needed to talk about what he and his family are going through. I should add that he’s not a total stranger, he’s driven me around before today, so it’s not totally odd that he should confide such personal things. I was glad to help him get out the feelings he can’t tell others who are too close and dealing with their own pain. I’ll say a prayer for his mom tonight.
