First I feel like I have to tell you. I love knitting. It makes me happy. It takes all my stress away. No matter how crazy my day was, I come home and start knitting and everything is better and right with the world.
With that said, I feel like I really haven’t gotten much knitting done this fall at all. Its just been crazy. Many nights I have come home form work or from working out and have really not had much energy for anything else so my knitting as suffered and progressed slowly. I am sure you have all been there.
Well, in September, when I went to Michigan, I started the Laurel Socks in Toe-Up Socks for Everybody by Wendy D. Johnson and finished them just before Halloween. I am now knitting the Fractal Danger shawl by Martina Behm. This is a fabulous shawl, crescent shape with a great geometric pattern. It is also easy enough to get me back in the swing of things and motivate me. I am about half way though. What am I knitting it with you ask? I dug out some yarn from my trip to Maryland Sheep and Wool a few years ago. Neighborhood Fiber Co. Rustic Fingering. Don’t ask what the colorway is. It is a long story, I know what the yarn is but not the colorway. I even looked on their website neighborhoodfiberco.com and it wasn’t on there so I think it is discontinued. But my yarn is orange. A bright beautiful hand dyed orange. I think it will bring a fantastic pop of color to any outfit.
Ok, well as with all Sunday’s and weekends all good things must come to an end. I have some chicken stew in the slow cooker for my lunches this week that I need to check on. The hubs went to get wings and watch sports with his buddy so I am left to forage for my own dinner. And I’m getting kind of hungry so I am going go do that now.
I will talk to you all soon and I hope in the crazy holiday’s we are walking into you get to set aside some time to knit for yourselves.
I will take to you soon and happy knitting.
