Today I will go back to knitting on my wonderful colorwork sweater with the great friends on the Astrid KAL. For the past couple of weeks I have been setting and thinking. Cleaning my room and cleaning my life while I was at it.
Playing with the kids, grandkids, and not trying to be too grown up. Joined some really great play groups online and enjoyed chat about all kinds of stuff from fishing to dolls.
I took a mental vacation. Now some of my closest buddies will tell you I have been on a mental vacation for about 20 years. Don't listen to them....
I couldn't concentrate on the graph for my sweater so I knitted a little doll sweater. Not much for 2 weeks work but at least I kept my hands busy.
I still miss my friend but I realize sooner or later each of us will head that way too. I will see him again. For now I guess I will have to do the playing and fishing and loving our family for both of us.
Above is a little pic of the gray sock wool sweater I made for the American Model Tonner Redhead Basic. I also did her hair. It comes in a horrific chopped up uneven ponytail. as soon as you take that rubber band out you got bare head lines between the hair lines and the hair is so uneven and such a mess that I set it with little permanent curlers, boiled water, and then dipped the water over her hair with a cup. Once the hair cools and dries a little you can take the rollers out and have lovely curls.
