Long time no post!

Life certainly has become both busy & challenging of late. No need to go into the details but suffice to say I am glad that I knit!

What an amazing stress reducer! Maybe it is because we focus on the project at hand. OR maybe it is because there is a rhythm all it's own that allows our minds to relax in an hypnotic daydream. Either way - I will take it.

The "Gift of Friendship" scarf is finis and blocking. What a fantastic design! Thanks again Chris! Of course - I had to find something ASAP, to keep my hands busy and my mind free from wandering!

Last night, I started the Fiddlesticks Lotus Blossom Shawl. I truly appreciate the way Ms. Dorothy writes/charts her designs. They are clear & concise. Her designs are intricately eye appealing but oh-so understandable! I love that!

Anywhoo ... will keep you up to date on it's progress .... I am working in a Fleece Artist "Country Silk" colorway .... Isn't it pretty?
Remember .... Inspire Art! Create Art! Buy Art! Be ART!! Comments, please!

I need stress reduction, I knit washcloths. You need stress reduction, you make a LACE SHAWL. Geez, woman! Love the colorway. You have a GOOD evening!

Wow, what a beautiful pattern! I also like your choice of colorways for making your own shawl. I think it will turn out beautifully!
