The Needles Return



All last week I dreamed of knitting. In my dreams I knitted sweaters, scarves, hats, and even a very interesting skirt I may actually try to do. The pull of the knitting needles was so exceptionally strong that I actually pulled out the needles and began working on some dishcloths I had promised Sister2.

The dishcloths weren’t what I was actually wanting to begin on, but short projects are important right now because this week and next are finals for me and I don’t have the brain cells left for doing much more than dishcloths, and perhaps a hat.

There is some lovely cotton thread I am going to be using for the summer hat. It is pink, yellow, green, and a lovely sand color with purples that are going to combine to make a beautiful chapeaux for yours truly. The hat is a treat to myself for actually completing this quarter, which has me practically brain-dead at this moment. (This quarter has been little else than stress after stress.)

Knitting? What knitting?


I was shocked to discover I had not up-dated here since April! I was even more shocked to realize I haven’t picked up any form of a needle since April! Just last night I glanced over at my coffee table and saw my stash box and felt the familiar itch in the palms of my hands. It is time to pick up the sticks again! It will also help my blood pressure.
