Tangles, Ceremonies, and Phases
A few days ago I started to wind up this lovely wool, bamboo nylon blend from Pagewood Farm. As I was winding the yarn and wishing I owned a swift, the coolness of the bamboo and nylon between my fingers was lovely. I seem to have tangles every single time I wind, and I feel that the universe wants me to buy a swift. We'll see... I can be stubborn. Once I'm done my memory erases the tangle and the frustration from my mind.
I haven't decided yet what I'll be casting on but I have a few ideas, I know that this yarn will be a shawl. Stay tuned for more details when I settle on a pattern.
We had two days of rain and clouds so my walking came to a halt. I enjoyed some time in my studio, untangling yarn (ha) and playing around with paper and washi tape. Each time I am in my space, I'm grateful I moved up there and enjoy the calm peaceful hours. How lucky am I!
Graduation ceremonies are looming in the near future for both of my kids. First one will be my son's ceremony next weekend, then moving him back home for the summer before he heads off to graduate school in Boston. I believe I'll be visiting a fun city more often and I'll slowly adjust to another parenting phase (gracefully, I hope).
My daughter graduates the following weekend from law school. She will continue to stay at her apartment to study for the Bar Exam over the summer. She has a job lined up in the late summer that is only one hour's drive away! I have dreams of visiting her for lunch or shopping, I think this will be a fun year for me.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!!
