After not wanting to do it, some changes are going to have to come. As such I have been working on other things this week instead of knitting. I am trying to be a great agent of change as one of my old employers told me to be. But I am struggling, I like change but what I have to actually accomplish it is not the fun part. In the past when changes like this have needed to happen, they seem to easily happen. But this time it is different. Where I am now is happy and fun to be, it just isn't meeting all the needs that it needs to. I know this seems very vague but as I can't remember who reads my blog, for now I have to be vague.
I have noticed that when I don't feel good I want a new knitting project. Today was one of those days. As I slept poorly last night and are already dealing with full blown spring allergies, a new shawl was in order, something simple but not boring. So a dive into the stash and a quick run through ravelry, I was on my way. The shawl is the age of brass and steam kerchief. I started on US size 6 needles but this time I listened to my inner knitter and stopped when it didn't feel right and recast on was US size 7 needles. I was happier almost immediately. While I will to work on other projects this weekend will deadlines this will be a comfort knit.
As a side note Mr80grit is down with his yearly cold, this one snuck up on him. Luckily it hit on Thursday, his day off and then he took today off. Hopefully a weekend home relaxing will do the trick.
