The gift knitting is well underway. I have one to show for now, a modified Hermione Hearts Ron (replaced the lace panels with plain purls between the cables) hat for my nephew. Everything else has been Goldilocks syndrome around here--too long, too short, and the next one had better be just right, or somebody is getting a gift card to go with her book. I have ideas for other gift knits, but am keeping a relaxed attitude about it. The next thing to get to is another Jumbo Gnome, and I am looking forward to that.
Anyway, more than a few of my not-so-favorite things have converged as of late. It is difficult because they are troubles for people I love, and I cannot fix any of it. They are not things to mention here, or really anywhere, I suppose, because they are not my things to tell. I am doing a lot of processing and not a lot of sleeping. So, for right now, I am just peeking in, reading blogs, and just not up for commenting. I am thinking of you all often.
