More big changes and lots of knitting!
Again lots have changed in my life since my last pledge to do this more often. I am now back with my husband (yes I was as surprised as anyone) and things are really well. I dare not say easy cause by far they are not, but they are so much better than it was. I am also happy. So lots of knitting. I have finished a wonderful Clapotis made from this stunning blue sea-silk that was actually a gift from David back at the height of our fighting. I was never able to pick up this yarn and knit it until we decided to give us another go. I look at the wrap and I am amazed that something like that came from my hands (I hope to get pics up at some point). I have also managed to crank out 2 scarves and a had recently. The first scarf and hat are thick and chunky and made of wool. I made a joke saying that I was only going to wear it when we venture to Tahoe cause it doesn't get cold enough for it here in Southern California. The very next day David called to tell me that it looks like we are moving to Northbend, Oregon. I have found a use for my scarf (although it won't be till next winter).
I have had the knitting Mojo with me the past few weeks. I just can't seem to put it down or stop thinking about it. It is not unusual that I have knitting with me everywhere I go, but I find myself yearning to pull it out and work on it way more often than I have previously. By no means should you take this as complaining...I love this new Mojo that I have found. I think part of it is getting to start new things that I have been not-so-patiently waiting to start. I am currently working on a pair of fingerless mitts called Susie's Reading Mitts and my LSU socks. My next project after one of these is complete is to start on the Shoalwater Shawl. That will be my first attempt at a big lace pattern. I don't wear shawls and know no one who does, but it will be beautiful. I will find a use for it!
