I’ve come to realize that knitting for me has been more about peace and maintaining calm in the craziness that is my world, as opposed to necessity. That has never been more apparent to me than in the past few weeks leading up to Hubs’ deployment. A few weeks ago, I started the Whisper Cardigan (Ravelry link) knowing full well that even on average sized needles, this lace cardi was going to take foooorrrreeeevvvvvvveeeeeerrrrr…
and it IS taking forever. So much so that I got tired of it and started a Honey Cowl the day after he left. Did I need a new project? No. Did I need a fresh distraction to keep me from thinking about how badly I miss him? Absolutely. And who wouldn’t want to be enveloped in buttery soft Madelinetosh dk? I absolutely adore this yarn- lets face it, I adore pretty much all of Madelinetosh’s yarns.
The colorway is Seaglass and is, in my opinion, the perfect green. If I could, I would surround myself in this color.
But between all the knitting, there was the kissing goodbye… and it hurts… We had a lovely goodbye party for him at my Dads last weekend- Dad even brought out the BIG BBQ which is a huge thing, since he mostly only uses it for when he BBQs for the church or caters weddings.
And now that the Honey cowl is complete, I’ve started another Tosh project- a Mara (Ravelry Link). The way I see it, the more tosh I use, the more tosh I can buy! I see no problem with my math ;o)
