Hmm, It seems I have been enveloped in a bit of a fog. Although I like to think I accept change and am grounded in reality, this is probably a bit delusional. My heart doesn't always want to admit what my brain knows to be true.
And yet, there is comfort in fog, not just disbelief, and we are ready for the sun to rise, it all fades away.
I am rather out of practice at writing. There is much I have wanted to say, perhaps some if it is still there, floating around in my brain; perhaps it will emerge. In the meantime at least I have a little knitting.
There are several failed sweaters sitting in a pile upstairs. I can't face them yet. Let's just say that I have had other priorities.
This scarf, however, was a success. The pattern is Spectra, by Stephen West, knit in Madeline Tosh Merino Light and Noro Silk Garden Sock. If you look at the photo in the link you will not exactly see my scarf. My gauge is smaller, intentionally so, and as a result my spectra is smaller and more scarf-like in scale. I like to think it is more feminine, but perhaps it is just girlish.
Nonetheless, I love it. It is the scarf I wanted. As there are no further photos, you will just have to let your imagination soar.
