Poor Passel. Abandoned. Sleeves Pinned to the blocking board. What is a sweater to do?
The knitter on the other hand, has fallen head over heels in love with another, simpler, less complicated project.
Truthfully, knitting time has consisted of car time and TV time, and seaming and embroidery do not fall into either category. I am glued to my chair in front of the television watching Ken Burns' The War, and as I watch I knit the brightly colored bird of paradise sock. It is moving ahead at great speed and it is nice to have something that just works without my having to think about it much.
In fact the sock is so easy and so bright and cheerful, I almost feel guilty knitting it while I watch this intensely emotional series.
And I got my invitation to Ravelry today. More distractions await.
