She's Ugly But I Love Her

I learned a few things after casting on for this blanket.

  • I don't want to work on David's blanket because each stitch feels like a step towards losing him.
  • My handspun yarn is the greatest thing in the world to work with.
  • I love entrelac. I love it enough to knit a whole afghan with it.
  • I can knit backwards, but I have to use the Combined Method.
  • I love knitting backwards.
  • Even the most complex knitting can become "space out" tv knitting if you do it long enough.
  • I consider an entire blanket of my handspun yarns the greatest luxury, even if the colors are a little fugly together.
  • I don't want David to go.
  • We went to our Overseas Medical Clearance meeting this morning and I can go to England whenever I feel ready.
  • I'm terrified to move with three kids overseas by myself
  • I miss my old psychiatrist, even though I really like my new doctor.
  • I don't want David to go.
  • I don't want him to leave.

I can see why you love her....she looks squishy and warm! Are you going to head over to England before David gets done in Korea? I have friend at RAF Lakenheath right now.

Granted, I have odd color sense, but I think she looks lovely!

You will be fine. Keep knitting and time will go by. Positive thoughts heading your way.

I think that your blanket is beautiful, especially since it's from your handspun.
