I don’t really know what to write in this space. I have snippets flying around in my head right now but the second I go to try and wrangle them into some sort of sense, they fly away again into a jumbled mess.
I guess since I can’t figure out a way to talk about my situation without sounding stupid, I could talk about knitting!
I picked up my Alpaca Tarp again… I think the problem with it is that the pattern is not very intuitive in certain spots. As you decrease the leaves, it makes total sense, but there’s a weird zig zag line that goes throughout the whole thing that keeps throwing me off! I do love it tho and I can’t wait for it to be done. It’ll probably be too big and too hot to wear now, but winter will come around again and I can always wear it in the house or out on cool summer nights. I’m second guessing my sweater now. Not because I dont’ love it and don’t think that I deserve it but because now that my situation has changed, I really feel that there are other big changes coming about, including getting back into better shape. Not to say that I’m going to wait to knit the sweater until I reach some magical size, but just that I don’t think knitting it in the biggest size right now is very smart when change is coming. At the very least, it’s still OTN and I am just going to put it aside for the time being and see how things shake out.
Being that I don’t have a single other project on the needles (besides the blankie, and we’re just not talking about that!) I think I’m going to cast on for a Multnomah out of either the Rayon that I bought in Tucson, or the MadelineTosh Pashmina that is languishing in my stash right now. OR! I could cast on the storm cloud shawlette out of Kangaroo Dyer’s gorgeous yarn. Hmmm… May do that… since it’s a cute and different shape than the alpaca tarp! And now I’m completely wrong because I also have my Schoppel Wolle Crazy Zauberball 6ply ribbed scarf on the needles… that will probably come to work and hang out here… It’ll be cute when it’s done and I think I might give it to the shop for a sample. I’m sort of running out of room to store the stuff and it’s becoming a bit ridiculous how many finished thingies I have!
That’s all I have for now. The Canucks play tonight and I’m going to be knitting on the Alpaca Tarp and screaming at the television! Doesn’t that sound like FUN?
