amethyst muse


23 January 2004

i'm back.

there hasn't been much knitting going on. i frogged Core when it became apparent that my darling girl-dhild is growing much faster than i can knit. i have to hustle with Sweet so that it will be wearable. or i may decide to frog that too. she's at an in-between stage. mot kids patterns are too small, most adult patterns are inappropriate for her age. still teaching her to knit, albeit slowly. she wants a poncho. maybe i can get that done for early spring, which, by my calendar, is right around the corner.

cafe bastille is still sitting in a bag. i sewed up the shoulder seams and started the neckline. and frogged it. then put it aside. i think i'll start a sleeve this weekend.

picked up an old UFO. Gracie from Rowan 31. i'm using Gedifra St. Tropez instead of Rowan 4-ply cotton. slow going on size 2 needles.

no new knitting content. i haven't knit at all this week. i've been hovering in a state of exhaustion, combined with a terminal case of nausea. add to that an incredible bout of stress, and it's a wonder anything is getting done. i'm very worried about how things are going to end up for me. it is really getting to the point where i may lose everything, and to be honest, i'm scared. i don't know if i'll be posting much in the next few days, but keep me in your prayers.

Happy New Year! Knitting has slowed down a bit, as I pick up the writing once again. But yes, I still manage a few rows here and there, while waiting for the muse to strike. I've finished the body of Cafe Bastille, and started the neckband. When that's done, I'll start the sleeves. Still contemplating warm weather gear, so I haven't started anything new. I'm avoiding Sweet, because it calls for casting on 401 stitches. I am simply not in the mood.
