On the lighter side, I was able to continue knitting through the chaos and the pain. For a while, all I could knit was dishcloths:
I was, previous to life blowing-up in my face, a bit of a knitting snob. I thought that knitting dishcloths was dumb and I was sure I would never do it. Never say, "Never!" I now see the value of knitting little colorful squares over and over again. It was therapeutic. I even started teaching a little group of women at my church how to knit them.
One of my favorite projects from the year, so far:
Fingerless gloves with Finger Cover
These were a heck of a lot of fun to knit. For anyone interested, the pattern is from Rauma LVS-3, Oppskrifter på Luer, Votter og Strømper
