I currently have one active knit on the needles. Saying that makes me realize I can cast on anything, everything I want. What a heady feeling. Anyway, the Sweet Summer Shawl has grown. I’ve started the decreases. Knitting it isn’t a chore. I enjoy the rhythm of the pattern. The needles I’m not thrilled with.
They’re old and as you can see the color is worn away. They aren’t as smooth as they used to be. Somewhere I have an Addi Turbo circular needle in the same size but I can’t put my hand on it. It might be trapped in a UFO. I do wish I was more organized, and had more space.
See the “pot” on the coffee table. Yes, it’s a chamber pot. It lived for over 25 years on my mother’s coffee table (which is now mine). It has a simple green houseplant in it. The Husband and I gave it to my mother for Mother’s Day years ago. When we lived all the way up in Maine (near Caribou for those that know the area) there was a wonderful antique store housed in a barn that we liked to look through. When we saw the “pot” I knew it was the kind of conversation piece my mother would love. I had the florist fill it with a beautiful display of flowers. My mother loved it and placed it on the coffee table. My father rolled his eyes as he always did at things that weren’t practical.
I’m missing them as we move deeper into the holidays. We’re working on forging new traditions and it’s hard. I’ve got a tentative plan for this year with thoughts of different things for next year. Have you got your plans all sorted out?
