Fell off the blog planet

Not only have I not had time to read blogs, I’ve not had time to *remember* to blog! But it’s been a good busy with lots of writing and revising and knitting in between.

And that’s a good segue into this post. I noticed that writing and knitting are similar in that when you run across a problem you can’t solve right away, put it aside for a while to let your subconscious work on it. Most of the time, it will find a solution for you if you’re not forcing the issue.

I was stuck on this pattern and thought I’d wasted a few weeks on making the scarf. I was annoyed but put it away for a bit. A couple of days ago, I thought I knew what went wrong. So I tackled it today and sure enough, I worked it out and now I will end up with two lovely scarves (because I started work on a new one while I had this set aside) for my mentor! Shhh…it’s a surprise for her.
