I woke up this morning with the thought, and those people were okay because people who didn’t know them pulled over on the freeway on that mountain pass next to that truck on fire and that steep drop-off in order to get them to safety, at great risk to their own. I just needed to emphasize that point to honor who they are and what they did, whoever they are.

Meantime, I finished a random Zoom-meeting-knitting hat. It started with an intended recipient but the overtwisted stash yarn was nah…not what I was looking for… But it’s done, and someone will like it.

I am determined to make some progress on that afghan even if I’m doing everything three times to get it right; I’m getting closer to where it’s more obvious and less of the stage of what will it actually look like if I do this no wait I meant this.¬†Two rows in 90 minutes with about 300 rows to go.

But at least I won’t be doing seed stitch in alternating doubled-stranded colors with a third worked across the back of them for much longer.

When did they say Christmas was?

Um, you didn’t specify which Christmas? Some projects just take the time they take. Enjoy the creating.

I was knitting while watching a livestream yesterday (I started to say “on a livestream” but that makes it sound like I was the one on camera, which I wasn’t!), and the second sleeve of my sweater is roughly halfway done. I am so tired of turning and turning and turning the project bag! Come on, sleeve, fly by and let me get back to the body of the sweater, I was enjoying that.

Hat! My current obsession is finding the word hat in books (most books have it somewhere, most blog posts do NOT) and you have it in this post. Chalk it up for me winning the scavenger hunt today.
