long time

I’ve neglected this blog. I know I have. Life has been so crazy and knitting has not been on my mind so much lately. My mom passed away last month, and before that she was really. Along with that my dad is fighting cancer. Yeah, knitting is not at the forefront lately.

I’ve been toiling away on the Pinkerton Shawl from the spring issue of Interweave Knits. It feels like its taking me forever,especially since I’ve gotten to the lace half of it. I’ve always wanted to learn to knit lace but now I’m beginning to wonder if I have the patience for it. The sock weight yarn is so thin and slow to work with, an the lace is just k2tog yo. It gets tedious after a while. I started the lace almost a month ago and have barely made a dent. Maybe other lace projects would be more interesting. I went with this one for ease, and the fact that the lys had a class/knit along for it.

I think I need to do a bit more on pinkerton and maybe do something like a hat soon. Something that reminds me that I can finish projects. It obviously wouldn’t be anything I can wear now, but I think it would help my knitting mojo, and my self esteem.

Knit and crochet on, people.
