Knitting as a lifesaver.

I'm finding it difficult to apply myself to anything at the moment. My blood pressure although decreased is still too high, my doctor has doubled the medication i'm on which has the effect of making me feel drained of energy...tired, needing sleep during the day.

But to the rescue this week has come some lovely very valuable friends who've given me morning ..chats...and along with this has come a renewed desire to return to knitting. Yes, i'm actually quite a good knitter last drawing my pins in anger back in 2004. I love the designs of Kaffe Fassett and have knitted a few of his sweater patterns in the past. So I've chosen one to start. My father in Law gave me a little money for my birthday so today I popped off down town to buy me some yarn. above is an instagram photo I took of the colour choices i made.

I've begun work already and hope to be able to bring you progress over the weekend. I love it..and I hope I'll have something wonderful at the end....see you soon!

I find this time of year difficult to get any work done. There are a lot of obligations and social events. Knitting can be interrupted often and with little detriment to the project. I'm delighted you are picking up the needles, happy stitching.
