One of the many changes coming from Covid for me is I can’t seem to think of anything that I think readers could possibly be interested in. I think of a possible target, don’t write it down then forget what is was. Linda calls that Covid brain. I was shocked to see the last time I posted on Knitting: A Love Story. The first couple of years of Knitting: A Love Story were printed in book form so my Mom could read them. She just didn’t get reading on an iPad. Those were pretty thick books. As the years have gone by, the books have gotten thinner until I’m not sure if 2020 will produce even a good sized pamphlet. No working at Ann’s By Design, or at least doing a different kind of work. No visiting new LYS. No face to face social knitting. Things have slowed down so much, except for Social Knitting From Afar with Linda. Our Tuesday virtual get togethers have become the focal point of my week and my knitting inspiration. Linda and I have finished our third project. It is one of my favorites. Remember The Moon and Other Satellites?
This is the yarn I finally decided on after several false starts. I must admit that I added and subtracted yarn along the way until it was perfect. Finally, it looked exactly like I envisioned it would look.
The Moon and Other Satellites uses five yarns but one of my choices was Twisted Fiber Art’s Nessy in Glamour. That makes it look like more than five yarns. When I look at TMAOS it relaxes me. The word cosmic pops into my head. See all of the little twinkling stars? Beautiful! Now I’ll just do a series of TMAOS and enjoy the scenery.
We have moved on to our next Social Knitting From Afar project, the second iteration of Spice Market. Just choosing a different color pallet makes it look like a totally different wrap. We’ll be done in a couple of weeks, then I’ll have a new Social Knitting From afar treasure to show you. I’ll try to be better at posting. See you soon.
This blog is dedicated to Mary Helen Growt my first knitting teacher and the woman who changed my life. The mission of Knitting: A Love Story is to preserve, share and promote the love of knitting.
