Let's have a little music to set the mood today!
Way, way back . . . in early September. Like . . . about the time we were shutting down the cottage Up North for the season. Back before . . . I visited Carole. Or went to Rhinebeck with Patty. Before NaNoBloPo. And Thanksgiving. And Christmas. And the bleak, snowy days of winter. Before Valentine's Day. Before the crocus popped up in my garden . . .
I started knitting this sweater.
And it went on. And on. And on.
WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM?
Did I drink too much?
Was I losing touch?
Did I build this ship to wreck?
It was just tedious.
But, thanks to Margene's encouragment (she had knit one of her own, you see; and I had seen it with my own eyes . . . and even touched it), I continued on. And, thanks to Kathy's prompting me to "finish before Easter" . . . well, I carried on!
And. I'm really glad I did!
Because Margene was right! I DO love it!
I'm so glad I didn't go down with my ship.
