Hey Knitting Friends,
How’s everyone doing? I am doing well as can be expected. I think I am experiencing anxiety caused by ’empty-nest knitting.’ It’s a similar phenomena that some parents feel when their children leave home. I feel anxious because I finished a project and now I tried two new projects, but nothing seems to give me knitting adrenaline. Hmm….this is totally a medical issue *sighs*.
I have made slow and steady progress on a sock using worsted yarn. I had to reschedule my knitting lesson because of the weather. I am thankful that Cloverhill Yarns shop (my LYS near home) is always available to offer help over the phone. I am happy that Thursday and Friday the shop is open so that I can Sit-n-Cry. I will say that I completely took advantage of help. Now I find myself at another dead-end with the sock. I wish I had another set of DPNs so that I can start on the other sock.
My last knitting confession is that I frogged the shawl that I started making for my aunt. I am still too frustrated with it. The 22+ page directions has caused me headaches. I wish I could just call the designer and get the quick 411 on the damn thing. I will swallow my pride and run back to the yarn shop this weekend. I’m looking forward to the Super Bowl, which has always been a holiday in my family. This year I will totally ignore it because I don’t like either team. The television will give great background noise. I will pause for Katy Perry’s Half-time show.
