Finished Just In Time For Spring
It feels like I lost two months or more of my life this winter with GO's illness and death. I am still moving along on the other sweater. I am now shaping the back neckline. About three more rows on that. Then put the shoulder stitches on holders. Then finally I can cut the steek on the armhole and start the arms. Yeah! So, yes, moving along.
I finished the pretty pink yarn. I will wind the final bobbin on the skein holder and then wash and block that and be done. It was a joy to spin. BFL and silk are two of my favs.
We got another cold spell with ice, sleet and snow. I am so ready for this to be over and done. I am ready for Spring. I have begun digging up the front flower bed and trying to get grass out of it. It is a chore that I don't like.
This past weekend we began the dirty, nasty, odious chore of cleaning out GO's cabin. I am now aware that I really didn't know him at all. He was very secretive, and even though I have know him for twenty-five years, I still am amazed at the hording and clutter and mess. I don't think he ever cleaned.
So now I am down to one knitting project. A customer in Little Rock wants some red socks. I have ordered some yarn, but nothing else planned. I guess I should just concentrate on the medieval sweater and get it done. Soon I will not be interested in knitting as much, and I would like that sweater finished.
CJE has two sick mamas in her house. H is feverish, dehydrated, and not eating. She thinks she has won the lottery. C started with a sore throat and is now having a respiratory infection. I don't know how she does it.
So now I will go open the front blinds and knit on my hard sweater. I use my insulated blinds when it is really cold. Which it is right now.
Keep warm. Keep going. Winter does have to end sometime, doesn't it?
