What a wonderful last couple of months I’ve had…many challenges, but blessings along the way, as well. I have acquired new work, secular, so-to-speak…that is, not fiber related in any way…though I will admit to spinning on my drop spindle whilst I wait for work. Shhhh…don’t tell anyone!
Also, Hal, my DH, has been dealing with some pretty severe health issues which, by nature, bring additional challenges for the rest of the family. The good news is, he is now somewhat stabilized and since I can work from home, I don’t have to worry about leaving him alone and I can also schedule around his doctor appointments…another blessing.
And, finally, there are the projects! The first and most interesting of these I’d like to share is this one:
You know how much I love shawls! And, you know, I really want one for the cooler weather just round the corner. I want it to be wool and warm and I really don’t care about making anything to be patterned or sold in any way, just something I can enjoy. The color here is pretty close, though I think the blues are a good deal brighter. I love Plymouth Mushishi…lots of yards and beautiful color changes. This is now my reward for getting my work done during the day…I get to play with this project every evening until it is finished! I leave you with a mouth-watering picture:0) Go and get some for yourself and do what I’m doing…a decide as you go shawl…you never know, it could be the best thing you ever knitted!
