and I do believe we’re getting along much better today than yesterday. Monday night I came home all hot and bothered about the condition of my home. I am not a super-tidy human being. I do not like filth. I love clutter. I don’t need alot of clutter, but some clutter is very comforting to me. Books and knitting and spinning stuff are my clutter of choice. But, when my Mom’s health was failing, I chose her over a clean house, and, I would do it again in a heartbeat. But, the house looks messy and I have been getting mad at myself for not diving in. So, Monday night I came home and looked around and thought, “Damn”. Then, I had a long talk with me and I realized I was stressing and I didn’t need to be stressing. A little bit at a time and the house will get done. I think it’s all part of my grieving process, but it got all muddled together.
So, the knitting thing? Still working on FLS. I am over half way on the yoke. I forget that when you increase the stitches, it takes longer to knit a row. Simple logic, but a much simpler brain. I still love it. It’s just slow going right now. When it has a pattern or some sort of shape that looks right (like a sweater), I will take a picture for you. And, it is very very pink. I am finding that I love color in my knitting. I have noticed the more I knit, the more color I crave. I wonder if it is part of the growth of a knitter? Maybe, it’s jut that my love of color is finally coming out. I love color. Adore it! I have a lithograph by Marcia Bank that I simply fell in love with and had to have at an auction. Here it is.
Not a good photo, but you get the general idea, don’t you?
Well, it’s time for me to toddle along to work and stuff. I am going to leave you with something mellow. Here are the melodious wanderings of The Who and “Baba O’Riley”. Enjoy
Have a great one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
