I am a bit absent at the moment – from life outside of work that is
It is that time of year when there are a few anniversaries some of them joyous and some of them very sad.
Sock Victim and I celebrated 4 years of marriage this week and there is a planned dinner out tonight.
Dad would of been 70 last week and next week it is 8 years since his passing. There was some strange comfort in working out the numbers last weekend. This helped explain the fug or fog that descended again a few weeks ago, each year perhaps a little different each time it mists down around me. The thing I notice is that I can’t knit – or concentrate on what to knit. So this year instead of railing against it I have embraced it and I have been knitting plain formula socks. I am onto my 4th pair now. I tried knitting myself socks but even that calulation was too hard. I managed to pull out my tattered piece of paper with the sizes and numbers marked out and delve into the stash box for another skein of yarn – there are a few.
There have been 2 pairs of regia, one Lang Jawool magic and now some zauberball……
I am all for the comfort of socks and knitting them at the moment.
