Today’s WIP is a newer project. It’s a Piper’s Journey shawl that I’ve been using as parking lot knitting. My 13yo has a decent number of classes/lessons/rehearsals and some of them are only 45 minutes long, so it isn’t worth driving home. I usually have a pair of socks on the needles at any time, but it’s nice to have a second project in the car that’s a little more interesting.
At this point in the shawl, I’m working on the applied border. I don’t have it entirely memorized, but I only have to glance at the pattern once or twice and then I remember it. The body of the shawl is just garter stitch with increases, so I didn’t need a pattern at all for that part.
Piper’s Journey was designed by Paula Emons-Fuessle. I enjoyed Paula’s podcast and I have been wanting to knit this shawl in her memory. Paula’s posts as she dealt with cancer reminded me so much of my mom’s journey, so it was really hard for me to read/listen. I honestly felt really guilty about it, but I guess that’s how unhealed grief goes sometimes. (Is grief ever completely healed? I’m not there yet, if so.)
For today’s run, I listened to a podcast that was actually quite boring, lol. I did, however, also start Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow on Audible the other day and it’s good so far. I have seen a few spoilers, but nothing too intense. It was a Book of the Month selection a while back and I was very tempted to get it then.
Alright, back to work on my yoga teacher training assignment. I’m literally dreaming of yoga at this point, lol.
