Once again joining Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. Fortunately there has been no unraveling of yarny things. The brain and body though? Another thing. Last night was one of those nights (again) where I was awake from 2 a.m. till after 4:30 (when I let Tyg out). I was asleep when the alarm went off at 5:30. So, I am more than a bit foggy this morning.
Since these sleepless nights have been occurring more regularly (not all that frequent, but maybe once a month or so), I've learned to *almost* enjoy them when they are happening. I take the time to really feel and listen to my breathing and practice my yoga breathing. I think of knitting projects - some in progress and some I am thinking of for the future. I'm beginning to think of these spells as more "found time" to just sort through things. The downside is, of course, I'm exhausted the next day.
On a brighter note, I'm going out to lunch today to Seasons 52 which will be fun and delicious.
Progress on Match and Move continues (albeit a bit more slowly). I've started Part II and the shape of the wrap is beginning to shift. I'm not quite halfway through the dark grey color, so still a lot of knitting to go.
It's hard/impossible to get it to lay correctly on the circular needle, but I think you can see in the picture that the one side (left) is still pointy and the other side is now moving across in a straight line. The color progression will continue as it did for Part I, though I may not have sufficient pale grey. If that turns out to be the case, I'll just finish it with some more dark grey.
Still up in the air whether or not I will take this on vacation. I wasn't planning to as it is getting a bit bulky, but I'm enjoying the knit (pretty much mindless) so much and it would be great car knitting. I'll figure it out.
I am still reading "The Swans of Fifth Avenue" by Melanie Benjamin. Also still enjoying it, but I am reading at a snails pace these days. Not sure what's up with that! My Kindle is loaded with good stuff, so I plan to read a bunch while away.
Happy mid-week -- almost at the downside of the work week!!
