Wow, knitters and friends. Thank you. Thank you for all of your kind comments here, on Ravelry, Facebook, and in my email. I am overwhelmed with your support and excitement! It’s amazing how once you start sharing your dreams with the world, the path becomes more and more clear. Slowly the whole idea starts to seem less scary and more plausible. I remember feeling almost nauseous the first time I reached out and told someone what I was thinking of doing. And each time I told someone, I felt a little more confident and energized until I was ready to shout it from the rooftops. Which is effectively what I did last week, eh?!
It has been a busy couple of weeks, packed with family visitors, fun activities, good food, and time with friends. We took a trip to the beach on Friday, PB’s first since she’s been mobile, and it was a blast. Cool and breezy weather didn’t stop us from setting up our chairs, walking along the beach, and playing in the sand. Sadly, the cool and breezy weather (plus rain. lots of rain) have plagued us for a few days now, and I’m starting to feel a little stir crazy.
I did have to take an unplanned knitting break due to that telltale tingle and burn in the wrist and thumb joint after one to many marathon knitting sessions. Fortunately, I have been able to pick up my needles again and am trying to work in 15-20 minute increments with plenty of breaks. The hard part of that plan is that I am at the border on my Chadwick shawl, and with the end in sight I just want to keep knitting!
