Coming In At The Middle Of The Story

It’s been harder coming back this time. Everything has been harder this time. Just getting anything done is harder. It isn’t just my father-in-law’s passing that is difficult but it’s the cumulative effect. Each time it’s like a partly healed scab being ripped off and it’s harder to mend each time. But I think if I keep faking it I’ll be there eventually.

There has been progress on my Loopy Academy projects but I am starting to get just a teensy tiny bit worried that I won’t be done by the end of the month. I’ve got all the real life stuff, the holiday which requires shopping and cooking and baking and all that and three, yes 3!, projects in various states of not yet done.

I needed something comforting so I got going on the socks.This is the second sock. The lousy photo was taken in bed last night while I was knitting when I decided that I had a blog that needed tending and a post without a photo is the dregs. The pattern is Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman. The yarn is Fibernymph Dyeworks inversibles in light blue/lemon. As I said this is the second sock. The first one is nearly done and I’ll give you a look at it soon.

    You do what you can, Karen. You feel what you feel and these feelings are valid. Just ride through the roller coaster. You don’t have to answer to anyone.

    It takes time to get back to “normal.” You’ve had an incredibly tough year. And now the holidays to deal with. You’re doing an amazing job and the knitting will help keep you sane! So glad to see the second sock coming along. Hang in there.
