One constant in these strange days has been knitting. Of course there have been some days that I haven’t felt up to it, or that it’s required more brain energy than I have. More often it is a comfort and a happy distraction at day’s end. I always have a few projects in the works that I’m actively working on. After a very long hiatus (nearly a year?) I’ve picked back up this Antarktis shawl to knit on and finish up. It is nearly done, only needing the last lace section or so before binding off. I made it larger than the pattern called for so I’m just improvising pattern repeats at this point and I like how it’s turning out. This yarn is one of my very favorites to work with and this color is truly enchanting and lovely. I can’t wait to see it when it’s done, it will be beautiful. My plans and hopes for this shawl were to knit it to sell/raffle off to help raise money for my brother and sister-in-law’s adoption, and I still hope to do so! I’ll share more about that soon.
I’ve been reading Home after finishing Gilead recently. I’m just a few pages in, enjoying it as before bed reading.
