Yesterday the contractor finished working in my studio! There is now beautiful lighting at all the work areas...it's amazing. I wish I'd done this sooner. Yes, David, I wish I'd listened to you and done this sooner. I can't wait to get everything moved back to its proper place and get working.
Last night after waffling a bit and playing with some yarns, I decided that I really do want to get back to knitting the sweater I started last year. I have quite a bit already knit on the back and it's so soft and pretty. And after my success at making socks, I figure I'd better try knitting a sweater. I could seriously be in trouble if I get addicted to knitting those too! Anyway, it's pretty easy so far. No major patterning to worry about. I'm just focusing on getting the pieces made so I can construct...and hopefully not be too embarrassed to wear! If I get into this, maybe I can start making all my tops: weaving fabric and finding attractive patterns and actually sewing. I'd never really considered it before, but why not...it's something to think about.
Also, I've been thinking about Grandma a good bit lately. It's weird how I will start thinking about her on my drive to work and then one of the gospel songs by Brad Paisley will play.
