My office gets a makeover. Painting all the things. Holiday on the good ship Covid. Rest, and being stingy with it. Wintering.
This is the video I watched about Long Covid. The channel has lots more info.
The lovely prose by Katherine May was from, Wintering – the power of rest and retreat in difficult times
Reading about knitting, I discovered, is almost as good as doing it. Susan Gordon Lydon’s, The Knitting Sutra, is a perfect companion when you can’t knit.
My post-convalescence projects included LumberJack, by Tin Can Knits, and Lilly’s Skyskrapa sweater. Owing to Covid Brain, I did not Ravel these.
I completed my second pair of Funky Grandpa socks while waiting for the power to come back during storm Eunice. In addition to the new heel, I also used a new construction for the first time. More on that subject in the fullness of time.
I also finished a pretty good pair of mittens, and cast on Paint Pan, (yes, again, shut up). All of which I will tell you about next week.
