All was going swimmingly and Things were being accomplished: I knit in the New Year
with a sweet mitten in organic Merino that I had dyed myself. I had written out the pattern and was on the verge of posting it on Ravelry and our own website. I had made Great Progress on an unfinished sweater from … shall we just say awhile ago. We had completed inventory at the shop. Yes, all was going very well, when I made the bold and fearless move to clean up my so-called-studio in preparation for the many wondrous fibery projects I’m dreaming of for 2012, when slam, bam, siss-boom-bah, I threw my back out. All dreams of all kinds came to a screeching halt while I could do nothing for several days but lie in bed and let the cats walk all over me (literally). Today, praise be, I feel myself to be back among the living, although the very slow-moving, delicately-walking living for fear of wrenching the thing again. Clearly the lesson to be learned here is: housework can be very dangerous. Probably best not to do it at all.
Now, to slowly and oh-so-carefully return to some of my ongoing projects:
Here’s some of my recent handspun yarn that I’ll be putting in the shop for sale:
Here’s part of my latest dyeing project, also to go to the shop for sale:
And so, friends!
Let’s surge forth into the New Year, ready to overcome whatever crazy
obstacles may come our way! Best wishes to all for a HEALTHY and happy 2012!
