I'm back! I have been knitting pretty much pain free all week, but I was scared to blog about it in case I jinxed it. I started gently, but, as the week has progressed I have ramped up to my usual level of knitting and am doing well.
It's funny, (odd, not haha) how much I missed knitting last weekend when I didn't do it. It was harder for me not to knit that it was to quit smoking. When I stopped smoking, I went "okay, I've finished with this. I'm done" and walked away. I'm so not done with knitting. I have to knit ALL THE THINGS, and then I'll stop.
I've been knitting Magrathea for Elise and I've had a remarkable amount of trouble with it. I don't think it's the pattern's fault, but some of it has just not made any sense to me. I've had to fudge the last bit of lace like crazy, because I just couldn't work out what the problem was. I just want this finished, it's kind of a reminder of the bad times of the last couple of weeks, and I'm going to move into a fresh project and a fresh new time.
Additionally I went back to spinning after more than a month. I'm still spinning The Thylacines sock club, I've decided to Navaho ply it because I love the stripping that's coming out.
