Shawl Knitting and Super Secret Projects


Wednesday morning, already!  Today I have a doctor's appointment for my RA, it's just a six month touch base visit.  Overall, I'm good, there is that.  It's been a year since I had that whopping flare - I hope to never do that again.  The flare stopped me from knitting and made me sad.  Knitting is my salvation and sanity, so I am thankful every single time I'm sitting and knitting without pain or limited mobility.  My gratitude never wanes.


These spring-like days have me looking more towards colorful wools in place of neutrals.  I haven't cast on anything new, but I dream about it often.  The left over various wool bits in the above photo are going to be little quick knitting projects that sadly will be secret until after Easter.  So you can use your imagination!


I've been knitting like a demon on my pebble beach shawl, inching closer to the lace details.  I do love when I get into the groove of the pattern.  So refreshing, simple and restorative.

I hope you have a fantastic Wednesday filled with relaxation and happiness!  What's new with you?

  4. Nothing new going on around here and THAT'S okay. Simple living is just fine with me. My current sock is going along well and I've been doing a little sorting of my books and magazines.

    Weather is nutso here. I may have to skip the knit group today, because the weather folk have me frightened that it may be fine one minute and a blizzard the next. I'm fully prepared to knit the day away

  7. glad you haven't had a nasty flare up like you did last year. Not being able to knit is the worst. I was so sick last week that I couldn't summon the strength to knit while I laid around.

  10. Yeah, I get a little crabby if I don't knit. I did a home workout today to get in my weights. I ran to Trader Joe's to pick up food for Friday's Craft Night charcuterie board and to make more ooii kimchi this afternoon.
