The Road of Life has been a little bumpy the past couple of weeks. There has been such a lot of living to do that I've been holding on for dear life just to make it to this point! Busy? Astoundingly so, but not to the exclusion of appreciating life and knitting. Blogging, however, has been the back-burner item that couldn't be squeezed in no matter how hard I tried.It's Autumn here in Berkeley. And just in case I'd forgotten, my tree dropped this on my windshield
So I would look up For two weekends, Ron and I did this: Actually, we did it two Saturdays, but I was so tired from all the work we did that it seemed like the whole weekend. Stop searching for me in the photo. I'm the photographer. Last Sunday I (finally!!!) finished this: Wove the ends in on Monday, wet-blocked it, & wore it to work on Wednesday. I'm not satisfied with the neckline, though. In a nutshell: too wide. You can see the bra straps if it moves anywhere, and the entire bra was revealed when I sat down to knit on the bed. Makes me feel a leetle self-consious when I wear it. ARGH! this has been the never-ending project. There will be some ripping back and redesigning the neckline before it finally does get finished. However, not to be discouraged, I immediately cast on for a new, fast project.
Rowan Cork, not quiet as hot a color as appears here. I may finish it today. Doesn't seem like much, eh? But throw in work (mind-numbingly complicated and confusing) and an impending globe-trotting journey and you've got nose-to-the-grindstone days followed by utter collapse in the evening. And speaking of that globe-trotting journey, my bags are (almost) packed. These socks will come along I may finish them today, too, for at 2:20 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time I am off on an adventure that begins with a 13-hour plane ride across the Pacific Ocean. What a lot of lovely knitting time! By the time I get there it will be 2:50 a.m. Pacific Standard Time and Sunday evening in Beijing. Next post from China!
