i’m beginning to worry

June 24, 2020

behind on my normal goal of finishing a clue
within 24 hours of its release,
today, i completed clue 4.

that said, i’m having some concerns.
having now complete four of the six clues,
i wonder: what will the finished dimensions be?
because it’s looking very….short?
and, as always, who will wear this when i’m done?
would anyone want it if i were to give it away?

because, while it’s incredibly fun to knit,
it is…a lot. in terms of color and design,
it looks like something an art teacher
might wear à la advanced style.

it’s definitely a process knit,
stimulating with just the right amount
of challenge and variety to keep one enthralled.
but what of the product? what will it be post-blocking?

i guess we’ll know in a few weeks!

are you making one?

in life news,
i recently escaped the city
(and, unknowingly, the specter of father’s day)
and got out into nature, evoking my ever-present
desire to abandon capitalism, grow my own food,
and read braiding sweetgrass on repeat.

how are you escaping?
can you, even?

    Fathers Day is a day of remembrance of the man who was the most wonderful and supportive father…gone way too soon 22 years ago. And an opportunity to support my sons in the celebration of their father. We stayed at home, had a wonderful home cooked meal, and sat around the fire pit into the evening.

    Your knitting is, as always, inspirational. I have decided that knitting is like any art form. Some people have the true talent and some people still try (me) but are doomed to be hacks!
