The swatch-acity of hope

You know, before I launch into finally doing that edging, I ought to go doublecheck that first shawl I knitted from this pattern idea just to make sure it’s exactly what I want…


Huh.  Well, count that one a redesign for that bottom part.  Better I decide now, at least.  I remember now, I kind of squeezed the rows on that first one, writing down as I went what I was doing, because I never did find its last ball of yarn so I only had so much yardage–not a problem on the second shawl.  I made sure of that.

I never do this, but by golly I am so tired of wanting to get to the next project that I’m going to just go launch into it before I go to bed.  I mean, this is really pretty yarn but I am just so ready to look at other colors. (My get-well afghans have tons of colors, and hey, they certainly worked.  You all don’t know how grateful I am every day for those.)

And yes, that’s my Dancing Queen bud on its second day.  When it wants to come to be, it makes it happen!

Oh–wait…  Okay.  I’ll swatch.

It *is* nice, when I think about it, to be able to re-write the endings any way we want at any time when it comes to knitting. Just like you all helped re-write mine.

Go eat some milk products today (I know, I know – dairy issues, but you can work around that 🙂 It’s Shavout. As my ex use to say – “there is something basically right about a religion that celebrates a holiday with cheesecake.”

My rabbi says this is the holiday that we thank G-d for giving us the guidelines for living an ethical life. And you, dear Alison, live one of the most ethical lifes I know!

Choices… you know how passionately I believe they define us. You choose so well with your knits and your life. Can’t wait to see the Dancing Queen in bloom!

It doesn’t matter if you write, or rewrite, because you’re good at what you do either way!
