Sage advice

Not mine, but Elizabeth Zimmermann's: Knit on through all crises.

I'm not sure the last week qualifies as a crisis, but it's been rough. Fortunately, I've had my knitting to help get me through. Here's a brief survey of what I've been working on.

Patrol socks for Mr. Darcy:


A Noro two-row scarf for my dad:


A gigantic granny square baby blanket that I will probably donate:


These three projects offer a nice variation in yarn weight and technique that's easy on the hands, simple enough to be pretty mindless, but with enough variety to save my sanity. Thank God for yarn.

If I had a dollar for everytime I said TGFY, well, if I had a hank for everytime, you get the picture. I love me some big granny squares. I have one of those too, I just keep adding rows when I find I just need to take the edge off. I found I can actually do grannies without looking! I just feel for the hole and go! That didn't sound right.

Socks are pretty too, and you fell for that scarf thing too? I hear everybody's doing it now.

That gigantic granny square baby blanket is the way to go--no seaming! That's my kind of a project.

Knit on.

I love the colors you choose for the granny square blanket. It looks great!
