About Me

My photo
Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Ramping Up

I made a lot of progress on the Sunrise Circle Jacket yesterday. The front section is curving nicely, as it is meant to. The raglan shaping is properly slanted. I count stitches religiously, every other row. To do otherwise would be to court disaster. I have no time for courtship!

I just switched out the cables on my KnitPicks circs. I probably should have gone with the next size up from the one I was using and switched again when it got full, and maybe I will do that when I knit the right half. That bag is packed and ready to go. My lunch bag is packed. I just need to figure out what I am wearing to work today. I need to save my best skirt for tomorrow afternoon [the memorial service for my friend’s baby]. I have no official Relief Society business to do, today, so I am thinking blue jeans with my favorite denim jacket, and a snazzy scarf.

Knit Night tonight, and quality time with Middlest and friends. I need to sit down one night this week and organize my Relief Society notebook. The one that Firstborn and Lark want to bedazzle [sp?]. Right now there are piles of papers on my couch, and they are beginning to interfere with my knitting!

One day you will come home and instead of macaroni art, there will be glitter and sequins everywhere. It will look like A Chorus Line threw up. It will be awesome. If you had a cat i would decorate it too.

When I was RS president I had frequent "organizing" sessions with my notebook and many, many papers. Not only does it keep the paperwork manageable, but keeps your brain refreshed on the work that still needs to be attended to.
Good luck with it all, and I hope the memorial service offers peace for the family.
