A whole month? Since I last posted? Huh. whaddya know.
There's no excuse, really, unless you consider this.... what in the world could have been said in the last month that would have been worthy of comment? I am speechless with shock and sorrow about the devastation from the two hurricanes. This is something that will last for a long, long time. For me, it is too big to even break into pieces to discuss. I can't pretend to have any idea what the victims of this tragedy are facing, yet it just feels so wrong to carry on with my own trivial daily happenings.
I think this is one of the many facets of depression. This is how I felt a year ago upon learning of the sudden death of one of my very dearest friends. You just keep thinking "how could this matter, look at what has happened" and try to figure out what comes next.
There have been many posts composed, erased, and re-written in my mind these past few weeks. My intent was to use this arena as my "thinking place". Oftentimes, I just can't make myself sit and spill my thoughts. I'm going to have to work harder on that.
On to other things....I've been knitting (a LOT). I'm enjoying playing with 2 fibers knitted together to make some different scarves. I did cast on a sock. I knitted 4 rounds on it, then it went to the frog pond. Size 1 needles are kinda fiddly, aren't they? I thought maybe I'd try again on 2's....or is it just a mind-game? Anyway, I also ordered some Addi Turbo circular needles so I could try the 2-circ method, but they haven't arrived yet. If I can get some peace and quiet I know I'll become a sock knitter one day... :-)
