Ah, friends, it's been a while. Years. So much has changed for me. I've spent the past few years dismantling dreams and building new ones. It's a long story, one that involves divorce and moving. I'd like to eventually share bits and pieces of it with you but know that the kids and I are in a good place, doing good things and I can't wait to share all of that with you.
Through it all knitting has been my constant. I designed this particular cowl just about when all of the change began, about three years ago. I didn't write down my notes at the time and the cowl sat, unworn and untouched, until the end of August when I finally buckled down and recreated it so I could offer a new design for all my knitting lovelies. It's another very quick, very addictive knit that is perfect for the upcoming gift giving season. You can find the pattern on Ravelry. I love the way Leslie's turned out.
I've already had such a warm and generous response to the pattern which makes me feel overwhelmingly grateful for your support of my work and in turn the new life I am building for the kids and I.
Ahhh...gosh. So much to say. Next time.
