May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always
a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a
friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to
power outages and yes, even a
tornado warning, [exciting times
to be had here in the country]
there is always time to knit.
Truthfully I think knitting
is what has kept me sane
these last few days, well knitting
and keeping my eye out for
I managed to complete all 18,180
stitches on the sideways border I
put on my Learning Pi Shawl.
[ I mentioned it here ]. Once the
weather is clear I will take some
photos so you can see it. It is rather
simple, but I am proud that I finished
it and that I learned how to do several
'new to me' skills.
I am almost done with the body of
the Tiny Tea Leaves and then it's
on to the sleeves. This has turned
out to be a very fast knit and if I
hadn't worked on the shawl I'm sure
it would be done by now. I am now
wondering if I might have enough
time to knit my daughter a cardigan
to match? If not, then her birthday
is in April and I think she would
like another cardigan.
Along with photography and embroidery,
weaving is on this year's learn a new
skill list, so I ordered Learning to Weave.
There is so many things I want to try,
to experience, to learn, how about you?
