Hello there. I have all but ignored this space for months and months; honestly I don't even think I have even felt the "should be posting" guilt. I have gone through a series of life changes- huge stuff that I have never had to face before. Choices I am making that will effect and affect the rest of my life in unimaginable ways; things that I never thought I would deal with and things I honestly thought I would deal with differently in hypothetical situations that are worlds away from my reality. Maybe soon I will use this space to expand but for now I just need to breathe. B.r.e.a.t.h.e.
And on to knitting. After months of not being inspired to do anything, and a dog that won't let me do anything I have found a new must knit project. This is a jacket from Lion Brand that I love because it is basically a big rectangle with arms. It is the perfect sweater style and so versatile. First I will make it like the instructions but with a much different yarn. Something textured and soft. Maybe I will make more with some cables, lace or embroidery. Versatile.
California smells like fire. The sky had turned a scary dark & orange colour that might be beautiful if it weren't so sad & scary. All those acres of homes and trees... The air & animals destroyed. Fire is humbling.
And I had more to say but it is slipping my mind.
Cheers all and happy October!
