I have't give up

Blogging... I had no time to post these last few days. I was working on the translation (which is finally finshed thank you very much). Beside work and that what time I had I spent with my son. Thankfully I managed to meet with my knitting friends both was a balm to my soul... speaking of which, I feel a tiny bit better now... No, I don't know what to do, or how to solve things, but I don't want to hide at the end of the world anymore.
Back to knitting... I forgot to mention the handknit sightings of this week.
On wednesday as I was going to meet Kriszta I saw a sweater. It was handknit. I was going down on an escalator, she was on her way up. The yarn was not a big deal, creamy white and from the look of it it had a considerable amount of acrylic in it (maybe even up to a 100%). But the knitting was lovely. Short, fitted cardi it was. High waist with cables and the upper part of some diamont lace pattern. Sleeves a bit puffy and short (ish, they reached about the middle of her upper arm)... With her romantic tiered skirt, it looked very cute, it would have worth a better yarn... which is one of my pet peeves. In this god forsaken end of the world there is so hard to get decent yarn.

I have some more to report for this week, but I am just on my way out to see my son who is with his father at his summer house by the lake Venice... be back tomorrow with the rest...

At the risk of being considered "cheap" from now on, I will admit that I buy a lot of acrylic myself... because all my money is going into the house right now ! But you knew that, having gone through my stash !
I'm glad you are finding solace in friendship. Friendship has been very important throughout my life. Who knows, it may in time bring you solutions you aren't even thinking of yet...
