Love Today!

I just realized that when I last left you I was in a state of emotional distress.
I wanted to let you all know that I am feeling better.
My life is still in upheaval BUT I am bearing it for the moment and things are moving forward - which is good, cause it is the initial movement or stagnation that causes me to stress!

Tomorrow I leave to drive my dear eldest daughter back up to Olympia. It is a long but nice drive (well except for the long boring part on I-5 through the central valley of California.) If you ever have to drive this bit of road, try to do so either early in the day or at night. Middle of the day is "no bueno". If you have driven it then you know what I am talking about! Anyway, tomorrow = long drive. Saturday = move stuff for daughter. Sunday = long drive back home.

Now, some of you might remember that the halfway point between here and there is lovely Ashland, Oregon. Gee, they just happen to have a yarn shop there. Huh. How about that. IT is also just a nice place to visit!

So, how about some knitting content? I have been plodding along, it's true - no other word can quite describe it - on the Print of the Wave Stole. I am almost done with the main body of the stole. I think I have 5 or 6 pattern repeats to go. I am also, yes, PLODDING along on the Mystery Stole. I decided to lengthen it and so I did an extra amount of Clue 4, but I am almost done with Clue 5 and am enjoying this. It is funny how I feel pressured to finish it, but really it is just an enjoyable knit.

I must admit to feeling rather uninspired about finishing sweaters that will get little wear in a tropical climate, but since Purlesence is having a Ribbi Pulli photo shoot in honor of their one year anniversary, I might have to get going on that one!

Well, I need to go pack, and since I do not have any current knitting photos I will instead leave you with something I stumbled across earlier that has had me in a good mood all day. May it do the same for you!

Drive safely! And yes, Web*sters is a great store to take a break in.

My Print of the Wave and MS3!!! I've got to get my MS3 going....BTW.....
Iris says she used Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, Kid Mohair-Brushed (70% Kid Mohair, 30% Nylon) in color Blue Sky, and size 4 needles. Beads are white in the center design, a very pale cream in the border design.

That song was wonderful. Thanks! I might have a new CD in the near future. And I was looking for the perfect scarf for my best friend to go with the Rowan Silk Wool that I just bought and I became quickly enamoured with The Best Friends Scarf! I will keep you posted. It seems like a "must knit now." I'll get on it.
