I mentioned finishing my mystery shawl yesterday. I love how it came out despite my earlier skepticism over the design. It is different, and that is good. I made two hats while at the cottage as the temperatures dipped. I worked on my red sweater and am now dancing that gentle dance of deciding if the length is just right. I turned the heel on my socks and knit most of the leg. I was busy, and I loved every minute.
Now that we are back, I made another hat, but that is all. It has gotten busier again and things have been a bit tense, but I want to finish the crazy spring socks this week. There is too much fall knitting to be done to worry about unfinished projects. So this week I pledge to finish those socks and begin something new or perhaps just finish up the red sweater which also seems to be languishing. With a completely clean slate, I can return home to Arizona with many new ideas and goals.
edited to add: I had to return A Prayer for Owen Meany, but I checked it back out from the library when we returned. I am still only about 50 pages into it, but I really like it. I am a fan of John Irving though. Reading and knitting this week again with Ginny.
