I haven’t updated because I really haven’t had much to share. Knitting has taken sort of a relaxed stance since I completed K2’s vest. I feel as if it was anticlimactic in a way. Here was this item that had been in various stages of planning for so long, even pre-true-planning and then when things got underway everything that could go horribly wrong did. Even at the final stage of it all when I finally was able to get the item to him to try it on a snipped too close to the edge end unraveled and I had to do emergency spare moment fixing without any proper tools. Honestly, I was so relieved by the hand off of said promised items I for a very delusional moment contemplated doing it all again.
And then you know, sanity returned and I almost visibly collapsed from the relief I didn’t make another ill-begotten promise. Recipient reaction was satisfactory: “O it has all my colors!” Which could be a two-fold excitement. One: he meant the ones he intended (which although I’d be glad to believe; this I don’t think is exactly what he meant.) Two: I much rather believe he means it was an apt homage to the original.
The shawls are growing. Lucidity has finally been moved to a 60″ cable and I’m onto the border. But with life getting peskily in the way and the beads being an absurd amount I’m only as far as row 9 of 44. Yeah, it’ll be a while. Vivacity (Levity 2.0) is going well but, I don’t pick it up often due to trying to get Lucidity of the needles to make room for this
Yeah I know, I’m excited too but, Lucidity is currently claiming the needles I want to use for it. It’s taking all of my willpower not to swap them out for instant gratification.
On a final note, I had intended to participate (officially) in Tour de Fleece but flamed out so bad so hard in the (wait for it…) first three days. Yeah, I’m a bit ashamed too. But, it is, what it was, what it will be.
Notice a difference?
Yeah me neither…
