My, this blog is either feast or famine of late--no posts for days on end, or several all bunched together. Oh, well!
This one is quick, I promise. I just wanted to report I've managed to undo my ghastly tangle and have gotten the shawl up and knitting again. It has taken me a good ten days to work up to it, and the repair took well over an hour with my glasses off, hunched over the work, rethreading kabillions of miniscule stitches onto these impossibly slender needles. I'm positively cross-eyed at this point!
BUT... I didn't bail out and quit, which I was sorely tempted to do. That's the beauty of having a blog like this. It keeps me from taking the easy route and shames me into doing what I should!
Some of the other workshop members have posted photos of their lovely completed shawls. Here's one here, so you can see what it is I'm supposed to be making:
I am definitely bringing up the rear in this workshop, but at least I'm still staggering along.
Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...
Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.
--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse
