Knitting News

 

Good morning! After what feels like many weeks of not knitting but in reality maybe two weeks (that is many in my mind), I picked up my languishing shawl and knit for maybe an hour. What joyous elation. It felt like sitting down with an old friend.

Speaking of old friends, I was unpacking my office/studio which is a huge huge mess and found my ball winder and swift. I was so excited! I've been wanting to wind up some hanks but packed those tools a long time ago. Now I need to wait for my desk to be brought to the studio room on Friday (family heirloom desk at my sister's house). I cannot wind without a table to anchor the ball winder and swift.

These past two weeks I've been daydreaming of free time to sit and knit, to sit and go through my yarns. This move has taken up so much of my time and yet yesterday I had pockets of time - golden minutes to sit and relax.

What are you working on this week?

  4. Moving is a big time consumer. Personally, I enjoyed unpacking the best. It always felt like Christmas, with opening all the boxes. (We moved 14 times in 12 years....I was an expert lol) I am sure your shawl was glad to feel your loving hands back on it too.

  9. There is nothing like a familiar project - and a few well-loved tools! - to make a new house feel like a home! So glad you're finding time to knit again! (I'm still working on the same pink cardigan ... no news here!)

  11. Hooray for a few golden minutes to sit with your knitting. I'm glad you found the ball winder and swift. Take a little time each day for yourself. Easier said than done I am sure. Currently I am on a mission to finish the shawl I've been working on since late Spring. I am itching to cast on another but feel like I need to finish this one first.

  16. Sounds like you are getting settled! That must feel good. It must feel great to have some time to knit! Your shawl is going to be beautiful. As for me, I'm working on some socks.

  17. Oh my your shawl is so beautiful. You made it in wine color before if I recall correctly ! Just love it. I don't imagine I'd follow the lace as well as you have.

  19. So many of us are moving these days. It is both good —forced decluttering and a fresh start — but also hard— packing and unpacking, constantly searching for things. I hope you are as happy in your new house as we are in ours!
