Drama Queen

Nothing like beginning a year with massive life changes. I cannot bring myself to go into detail right now, but let's just say that my path to the future has gone off road. Needless to say, I have no words for the experience right now, but I'm sure I will again have the ability to string plenty of apt phrases together after gaining a bit of distance from the whole debacle.

Personal drama aside, I have finished another Danish Tie Shawl. Like it's predecessor, this delightful example of shawl-dom was knit from my own hand-dyed fingering weight yarns.





I am also quite close to finishing the pattern testing for the Pie-rets. Let me tell you all that I must have been drinking when writing up the lattice crust version of said hat. Uh, yeah. Pattern testing has been nothing short of an adventure. Wow. Anyway, I'm almost there. Should be finished with the final version of the Pie-ret patterns this week. Stay tuned!!

The shawl is beautiful. As for the rest...doors, windows, closing, opening...you know the drill. Hopefully the debacle isn't as debacling as you think. In any case *hugs*.

Love the yarn! I don't think I would have thought of that color combination, but I really, really like it! Especially in a big project like the shawl. Looks great!

Your shawl is awesome, as is everything else you've ever made.

Sending a big ole hug to help ease you into your altered life.

I hope things aren't as dark as they seem right now. They rarely are.

Have an internet kitten-nuzzle. Internet kitties are cute, fuzzy, but don't steal your yarn, btw.

And the shawl is, of course, gorgeous.

Life changes always happen when we least expect them. I'm still dealing with the aftermath of one from the fall. There's always a lesson with those unexpected things, tho, and we just haveta take time to figure out what we're to learn from stuff.

I'll join you for chocolate therapy whenever you need it. :)

As a die-hard crocheter and someone who can't seem to figure out how to handle two sticks in her hands, I'm in awe of your knittery. The colors of the shawl are like a sunrise ... just gorgeous!

Good thoughts coming your way. May it all work out for the best.
