I leave for my vacation in England in less than 3 months now. Those 3 months will be full (as are most days!). We’re preparing to start kindergarten for Samantha and preschool for Erica. I’m considering a babysitter for Jessica one day a week so I can devote time to work, instead of finding time for work. We’ll have Girl Scouts, soccer practices and games, Sunday School, and the logistics of day-to-day life filling up our calendar.
And still, I find myself thinking about my time in England and how I can’t wait for it to get here.
So, to help pass the time I’ve decided to start a large-scale knitting project. I’ve got socks on the needles, a shawl hibernating, a test knit halfway completed, and a hat almost completed. But I want to knit something for myself, and I think the time is right for Catriona.
Three months to knit Catriona. It’s actually a pretty ambitious goal, because of all the cabling. And I won’t lose sleep over it. But I’d like to challenge myself and see if I can do it. Bring it with me. Wear it.
It seems to suit, doesn’t it?
