Two More Sleeps
...till I turn 53.
It's been a lovely summer, gone too fast.
I have managed to knit up a storm, though, and there is still no satisfying my fingers. Knit, knit, knit. The back and 2 fronts of one hoodie, started the back of another. Working on the border of my Shetland shawl, and on two garter-stitch scarves of novelty yarn. And on the tip of my qiviuk shawl. Also finished a receiving blanket for a neighbourhood baby-soon-to-arrive, and 4 squares for a charity afghan (via my LYS, The Knitting Room).
Plans in my head: a Very Harlot Poncho, two pair of fingerless gloves for two special young men, a gansey for my DSIL -- all as Christmas gifts! -- a pair of angora mittens for who-knows-who, and a Faroese shawl (for me!). A chunky 'mistake rib' scarf -- also for WHW...
Meanwhile, I am also stitching a pair of little Provincial emblems for a wedding gift, and two samplers...and working on 2 art quilt pieces (with 2 more in my head) and 4 regular quilt tops -- in various stages of completion!
And my online writing class with The Writers' Croft, inspired by the wonderful, mystical Oriah Mountain Dreamer...
Ah, it's a grand life!
