I am back home and have been for two months. It is so nice to be here with all my stuff. Mostly my creative stuff. I can live without it but I am glad I don't have to anymore.
I have a bit of an obsessive streak and right now knitting is my
interest. I am quilting quilts for others and that is fun but I mostly
prowl the web looking a yummy yarn. It is interesting that knitters talk
about their stash (some have a very impressive stash), and where they
are going to store it because they are running out of room, and how they
will never be able to use it all up in their life time. All of this is
so very much like quilters and their fabric. Some even talk about
sneaking it into the house. This is stuff I can relate to and it makes me smile although I think my stash is a total of 17 skeins.
I want to share what I did while in Brazil. To have wonderful yarn I ordered some yarn and it was waiting for me when I made my quick trip home last March. When I went back I took about 16 skeins of yarn for socks. I figured that was something I could learn to do. So in my remaining 6 months I made 10 pairs of socks, one scarf and one cowl. It was really very fun.
After making socks I was ready to move onto something else. Sweaters! In October I bought yarn and began a sweater. I was able to finish it in about a month. Yea! And it even fits.Well, the sleeves are a little short but I am not redoing it.
