In which we conquer lace (sort of) 3 hours effort in Emily (of Tin Can Knits) class. I used stitch markers! I undid a lot of knitting! I did things which made HOLES! And most astonishing of all I visited Glasgow AND IT DIDN’T RAIN!! One of my fellow Granny Greeners conquered the Mighty Granny Square and another SPUN YARN. Much yarn was bought.
I’m sorry about the lack of updates. My camera was finally found but its different from the last model and I’ve not worked up the energy to work out how to download pictures. I’ve been attempting a ‘still life’ this last week after much energy being expended. Sadly I’ve not made much progress but a blanket and a half have been completed. Again no photos due to rubbish weather for photographing crafts.
I bought a new camera (mislaid it) so these pictures are kindly supplied by a friend. New yarnbomb commenting on local politics.
Life is a difficult assignment. We are fragile creatures, expected to function at high rates of speed, and asked to accomplish great and small things each day. These daily activities take enormous amounts of energy. Most things are out of our control. We are surrounded by danger, frustration, grief, and insanity as well as love, hope, ecstasy, and wonder. Being fully human is an exercise in humility, suffering, grace, and great humor. Things and people all around us die, get broken, or are lost. There is no safety or guarantees.
The way to accomplish the assignment of truly living is to engage fully, richly, and deeply in the living of your dreams. We are made to dream and to live those dreams.”
