I am starting an 8-week meditation project based on Full-Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Great book.
I am chugging away at the Cinnamon Grace I am currently knitting for Jorie. This is to replace the failed Damson. I'm a little more than halfway done with the body of the shawl. And given that the rows are only 36 stitches wide, it's moving along pretty quickly despite the fact that I'm using sock weight yarn. Here's a shot of it as of right now (taken on the subway where I do the lion's share of my knitting. That's Georgia's foot in the pink sandal):
And in case anybody is interested, here's a shot of what was formerly known as Yankee Stadium. It's almost all gone. As of this morning there was one entrance gate left - the stairs/escalator on the far left of the stadium, as viewed from the subway platform - and the crew was busily tearing that down. I expect it'll all be gone by the time I get home this evening.
And I'm still working on the Villane. Although I have discovered something about myself. Cables stress me out, and my gauge shrinks massively. Also, I screwed up one of the cables on the sleeve, so I'm going to have to go back and rip out.
Might have to go to a bigger needle size. But all is well because I'm magic looping it, so I won't have to buy any new needles. Magic loop is kind of a pain, but I like it better than DPNs.
I'll start posting more frequently as I work on leaving this job (last day is the 26th!). I might actually have more time and energy.
