Not Enough Knitting Content!

For those of you who've been wondering if I'd ever get a knitting essay done here, It's because of the photos above and below that I've been remiss. Aibhlinn has been an absolute bear, but has taught me much. After frogging back to casting on several weeks ago, I worked on her pretty strong until two weeks ago. For some reason I felt the need to switch, and picked up Clapotis (photo above). It was about time to drop stiches...and once I did, there was no going back to Aibhlinn, till I finally felt guilty on Thursday night. I'd been to our local Knitting Meet Up, which was a fun time, but I was the only one using acrylic yarns (Caron's Rainbow Dreams Fair Weather on Clapotis). When I got home, I felt the need to touch and work with cotton again (being allergic to wool), so I picked up Aibhlinn for a row. Then took her to work the next day. I got 6 rows done before I realized I'd started up at the wrong point in the pattern and had my lovely "pebbles" instead of sweeping "pathways" again! So I tinked, stitch by stitch back 6 rows. ARRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHH! And finally put in a lifeline.

I've learned my lesson. When I begin Queen of Hearts I will use a lifeline religiously. My time is limited to do this craft I love, and I can't spend hours unknitting. A lifeline provides the security I need.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
