So a few weeks ago when I ordered those six skeins of Dream In Color Classy for my, eventual, Tea Leaves Cardigan I won a skein of Dream In Color Smooshy in their yarn lotto at Eat. Sleep. Knit.

And it came just in time. There has been some major miscommunication, on the part of my History teacher, and I was a bit anxious the past couple of days due to her lack of competence regarding school deadlines. The final result is that she is adding me to her class today. So things are fine. Just fine. Extra fine with an extra skein of yarn just calling out to be a pair of socks.

In One Moment

… you can write a grocery list.

… you can download five songs onto iTunes.

… you can forgive someone.

… you can change your clothes three times, shoes twice.

… you can eat a cup of Tiramisu from Porto’s.

… you can walk to the mailbox and remember the smells of spring mixed in with the scent of night.

… you can imagine what a skein of yarn may become.

… you can finish a knit sweater that’s been awaiting a good wash and warm blocking.

… you can tell three people and one cat “good night”.

… you can collect all the cups and trash around the house.

… you can make extensive plans for the next couple of weeks. *

February Lady Sweater

Dream In Color Classy: Chinatown Apples

Needles: 7’s

Mods: I was working with three lighter skeins and two darker ones so I worked the darker skeins into the yoke and bands. Ended up with about a 1/2 skein. Knit only two button holes, (still looking for the perfect buttons).

* I will be away from this space for at least two weeks. My Dr. has decided I’m a good candidate for ECT and I will be staying at Cedars-Sinai while participating in their inpatient treatment. While I know this is a very controversial treatment I also know that this is something I must do. Prozac, Lithium, Wellbutrin, Celexa, Klonopin, Ativan, Depakote, Seroquel, Geodon, Effexor, Abilify, Navane, Zoloft, Paxil, Remeron… I have tried them all. This is truly my last option. And with the research I have done, there is one thing I have now.

Hope.

Take care of yourselves until I get back. And thank you, for giving me hope.
