I’m still here

Hello. It’s me. I was wondering if after all this time you’d like to meet, to go over everything.

Okay, not everything. I will refrain from making this a completely political post and just say that I am devastated and scared and determined to do what I can to make sure my country remains great. I think everything beyond that has been said, and plus, I just don’t feel like going there here.

So instead, let’s talk about knitting. I have been MIA for a while, I know. The girl has had lots of music stuff going on but last weekend was the highlight: she earned first chair flute in the All-District band! Woo hoo! That means she gets solos in the concert and gets to audition for the All-State band. Fingers crossed for that one. I have been knitting, but can’t share most of what I’ve done lately because it’s a secret Christmas project. I have been working on my alpaca color block wrap and it’s grown quickly; I only have a stripe and a half left.

It’s deliciously soft and warm, and I can’t wait to put it in my rotation of hand knits. My other current WIP is the Hitchhiker Beyond. It’s going more slowly, but that’s what you get with fingering weight and small needles.

The color is terrible in this photo, not accurate at all. I’m so sorry. I’ll do better next time.

And here, look at my new tote bag!!

Pretty cool, eh? Might be my new favorite.

Until next time, whenever that may be, hope you all stay safe and happy!

  1. That first project of yours looks a lot like the Tubularity cow by Martina Behml! I just finished one šŸ™‚

    As for politics, I can’t even… Stay safe, and be kind to one another – that’s the only thing you can do right now. Come the next elections, I hope people come to their senses!

  2. Both projects are beautiful. I love the purple shades.
    As for politics, please feel comforted that the 49% of us here in the uk who are also currently stuck in an unbeleivable political reality, you are not alone, and we will support you and stand with you in the fight to spread love and happiness and kindness regardless of what is happening.
