Can It Be? NOT Allergic to Wool?
While I was at it, I ordered Knitting Heaven & Earth by the late Susan Gordon Lydon, one of my very favorite authors. I will miss her, may her spirit fly free!

Sanity & Grace
Those of you cautioning me to go slow are wise, wise, wise, but I keep forgetting my age and thinking I'm back in middle school...
Knitting? What's that? lolol

An Update on “Developments”
And I suppose I’ve changed enough to warrant a reacquaintance period. Since my heart attack, I won’t “settle” for anything but the very best (of course, I have to be the one to decide what that is!). Is he the one to fill that order? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. But I’ll give you a hint – I’ve saved every scrap of paper that’s ever gone between us.
The man from my past is as alluring as ever (to me, anyway!).

Triangle Lace Shawl Progress
Or Perhaps My Imagination is on Overdrive?
Well, it appears that the man from my past was really contacting me to be sure he’d said everything he needed to say…as in he’s ill and possibly clearing up loose ends in his life. I don’t know how ill, as I wasn’t informed. But I was firmly asked not to contact him. And I will honor that.
Maybe the stars (or whatever) are saying that all these loose ends in my own life are being wrapped up for me for a reason. Whether it means that I have more to learn about living alone, or whether it’s clearing things up for something else entirely, I really couldn’t guess. I’m not a soothsayer. And maybe I’m reading the man from my past all wrong, too.
I just don’t know. As we can never know. So I’ll keep knitting on the triangle lace shawl and making Nana Sadie Rose bags, and try hard to let life evolve at it’s own speed. I just hope it’s not warp-speed!

I was sitting and knitting today – on the lace shawl of all things – and thought I’d just discovered a huge error, was looking to see what I’d done, if it was really going to affect the look of it, or whether I’d have to visit the lily pad once again – when the phone rang.
A voice from years ago was on the other end. A man I’d cared about, but it hadn’t been the right time for either of us. (This was during an “off-again” period with the man I just broke up with a couple of months ago, for those of you who are keeping track!) Our paths have crossed a couple of times during the ensuing years, but it was always the wrong time.
He was just calling to wish me happy birthday. And tell me his whole life had changed. Freeing him at just the point I happen to also have been freed.
Interesting developments, indeed. We’ll just see how this particular part of the story decides to unfold, shall we?
Oh, and just for the record, the lace shawl is fine – I’d gotten lost in the chart again, and didn’t realize it – so the phone call saved me from frogging yet again! Divine intervention? Perhaps.

And I love every minute!

Accomplishment & Knitting Content!
Brief Update - It's Raining!
It's raining and as dark as dusk outside today, courtesy of what's left of tropical storm Cindy. We're supposed to get as much as 5-6 inches, tho' I suspect a little less. Hope so, it's Knitting Meet-up tonight! I'll need to cross the river!
But the rain seems appropriate today, in light of the attacks on London. Savagery. My heart goes out to everyone there.
With Hurricane Dennis raging towards Florida, I wish only the best for my friends and family there. Batten down the hatches and stay safe, please?
And on a personal note, I'm off on partial disability thanks to my autoimmune disease and it's complications for the next few weeks. Though it'll be slow, I'm hoping to tackle a few needed household chores. My dining room was the first - it no longer resembles Nana Sadie Rose's fabric and yarn warehouse! But I can't push very hard. I work a few minutes and sit. Then a few more! And take a nap!
Anyway, stop by and chat a bit, if you've a moment - the next few weeks may get pretty boring!
