I have completed step 1 for the February Fix, Alison's move to get us all loving our knits again! I was not real happy with the fit of my Klaralund, I am going to re-knit her in a smaller size, and probably make the body a little longer. Between the yarn loss I had when I first knit her up (one really bad skein) and some breakage while reclaiming the yarn, I figure I might buy 2 more balls and use it to knit the back panel. That way, with the back part of the sleeves knit vertically, the color difference shouldn't show too much!
I have set aside my WIPs to knit a loving thoughts shawl. You have heard of prayer shawls, right? Well, someone did something horribly hurtful to me recently. I was feeling really bad and I decided that I would knit this shawl and while working on it, I thought of all the people who love me. I am almost done with it and will post pics once finished. Anyways, it was incredibly helpful to think of all my loved ones and know that they love me. And when I am finished I can wrap myself in their love when I feel down!
Speaking of people who love me, I was REALLY sick this weekend (I think I have the flu) and my wonderful husband took care of George all weekend for me. He is so great!
