Happy 2010. I love this time of year- it can be so peaceful. As I am knitting, I am looking out the window, and snow is falling gently. I love snow.
I just wish I could feel as peaceful within. Sometimes, a gauge of my state of mind is how many projects I am working on. For me, what usually works best is to have a major thing, like a shawl or a sweater, as well as a pair of socks or mitts- something to give me a break at a stopping point.
Right now, I am working on my Dale Foxes for the KAL on Ravelry- which is working out wonderfully (the KAL, that is).
I began a pair of mittens in some leftover Spindrift (I have a ginormous ziploc bag full of Spindrift). I am going to reserve judgement about these, but let's just say that I would have done things a little differently. But what's good is I am learning some new techniques.
The other 2 projects are my Kashmir Woolen Rabbit Aeslight shawl, and the Ice Fantasia.
I blocked my Lughnasadh shawl- I used Kauni.
I have always thought that knitting is supposed to give me pleasure, but when I'm working on one thing, I am feeling that I need to be working on something else, or looking up more projects and figuring out if I have the yarn for it, blah blah blah.
I have to stop. I am making myself loony. Like a fish in a carwash. Crazy kinda crazy.
