I haven’t! Not entirely, anyway. Life has been… well, see the last entry for an idea of how life has been lately. I’ve been bringing my knitting around with me like a security blanket, but not knitting a whole lot. At the moment, I’m in the middle of a 12-day long stretch of workdays. I’m knitting a bit at night but a lot of time by the time I get home (often late) I’m usually too tired even for that. On the other hand, I made a big chunk of progress visiting my grandfather in the hospital (he’s okay, but yes, that is the sort of thing that’s just par for the course lately). Pathetic fact: I discovered that I can keep knitting at full speed while crying a little. But, progress.
Um, right, I should try for some content that’s , um, positive, unlike the above. Well, I just ordered a big old bunch of yarn because the Yarn Harlot posted about sweater I just couldn’t refuse, and I’m working on getting a massive other quantity of yarn so I can start on my crochet journey. I also delved into the exciting world of yarn arts on TV with Knitting Daily and Knit and Crochet Today. I have my DVR record them and then watch themwhen I think David isn’t bored enough when David isn’t interested in watching TV and I am.
So I’ll post pictures of the giant piles of yarn when they show up, and since I’m getting some enthusiasm for knitting back (as I’m getting some enthusiasm for life in general back) I’ll be posting more in general.
Oh, yeah. Yarn diet? Over. I made it since December! So, between that and all the stuff that’s been going on lately, I thought I’d try to make up the lost time STAT.
