I missed you. My sister died on Memorial Day, and I kind of fell apart. You remember my sister, who did NaNoWrimo with me last year? Yeah. It was tough; still is. Anyway.
Rachel loved to read my blog. I don't know why. But I figured I would post on it more regularly, because, you know, maybe she is still reading it.
Let's see. What has happened since I finished Harriet? I knit a Doctor Who scarf:
I knit a plain pair of socks:
I did a mystery shawl with leftover yarn from the Pueblo Stole:
Then my sister died. I had a couple things on the needles when she died, and I have since finished them. One is a leftover scarf from the browns in the Pueblo Stole:
I had this wonderful yarn from Ball and Skein, that I used to make Snowflake Lace socks:
I started another pair of socks on Memorial Day, but they are not finished yet:
I needed something simple to knit on, something I could cry into. I am almost finished with them.
Then, I crocheted a hat with leftover worsted yarn:
That was a quick, two-day project. Last week I started a lace cardigan project with some of Rachel's yarn:
I haven't gotten very far on it. The yarn is fuzzy and tangles easily, and with only one hand, I find tangling to be really unfortunate. Today I thought about how to knit it more easily, and I think I have found the answer, but I will let you know after I try it out.
I just started today on the Summer Mystery Shawl from Wendy Johnson, which is pleasantly non-combative and easy to knit so far. I'm working on the first clue:
That brings me up to date. Happy knitting, everyone :)
