I have been slogging away at my miter squares. How Kay can sneeze and "oops!" she has 20 ready for a baby blanket is beyond me. I'll be happy to get my baby blanket done for my nephew before he arrives in the beginning (?) of October!
I noticed while admiring my "progress" that my tension is finally getting more even and consistent.
I'm no Melanie, but after switching to continental, I am starting to get the consistency I was seeking. I'm still learning, though, because I noticed that my earlier squares seem a little bigger. Tiger didn't groove on his new swing immediately, but he's cleaning up now. I, too, am evolving through this retooling.
Finding time to practice knitting has been difficult, though. Because if readying for back-to-homeschooling wasn't enough to keep me busy, my husband also moved his office - to our house! Everything we had needed to be moved/shifted/retooled (!) to fit in an even smaller space. Here's what our entire first floor looked like for a week or two:
But luckily, he built me this cool IKEA unit that now holds most of two bookshelves worth of school. All within reach of our school space/kitchen table. Here is "my" space from disaster to ship-shape:
Another retooling underway explains my month long absence from TenTen. It turns out that my re-entry from vacation back to "real" life was a tough for a good reason. I had/have mono and it is draining the very marrow from my bones. Retooling lately has meant learning to deal with what I can and can't do. Most days are pretty good, but when I get tired, I. get. very. very. tired. So tired, I can't even knit! This just stinks, but I should be well on the mend by now, so each week will mean more energy - and more knitting!
So for now - my posts will probably be sporadic and consisting of things that are still in progress. - but I'm hanging in there! All in the name of retooling!
