Yup. She was right. Knit through the tears. That’s what I have been doing, sort of. I have alot of times when I just sit looking straight ahead and woolgather. But, for the most part, other than the grieving, I’m doing pretty well. Poor little pup, Grover, is still having a bit of trouble, but I notice he’s pulling out his toys a bit more now and I consider that a good sign. I have found that other than the sorting “project” I have yet to tackle, I have a whole lot more time. That has translated into knitting time. I cast on the “Simple Lace” shawl by Anne Hanson (I’ve had the pattern forever) in the Beaverslide Dry Goods cone I got in the Thimbleberry colorway. I’m still working on it, but it has been the perfect companion for me. That, plus the other Tonks/Opal sock, and that’s been my knitting for the past week.
I’m unable to look at PurplePi right now, but will make a final decision on her very soon. She was for Mom, so I honestly don’t think I’ll complete her, but the final decision has yet to be made. Still, I don’t want to wait too long. I still have Margene’s and my BSIL’s needles and want to get it back to them, so I’ll keep you posted.
What else? Summer has refused to settle in here in Middle Earth. We have 90’s and then the temps drop to the 70’s. Alot of rain. Other than the allergies, I really don’t mind it. Cooler than normal so far. Weird, but ok.
I was going to take pix of knitting and flowers and stuff, but noticed the camera batteries are dead. It’ll wait.
And, my soundtrack for today??? I’ve been hearing Pentangle in my head lately. Here’s “Light Flight”.
Have a good one!!!
