It's amazing how much solace I get from my knitting. After a long time out of the workforce. I started looking for a job this week. Not an easy thing to do even though I have experience. I have a gap of over a year and people have moved on from places where I've been before so it may not be so easy to get references. I am hopeful that I will have something soon. (I work in retail these days part-time although my degree is in accounting.) Knitting really helps me on days when I am tense and unsure of myself. The repetition is like meditating and sets my mind at ease when it is tense. I don't know what I would do at a time like this without it!

Last night I measured Aibhlinn and found I was a drop more than halfway done. I was a little surprised as I have been working almost exclusively on Children in Common socks lately. But this pattern works up so fast it's easy to put a lot on without realizing it. I've had to tink a couple of times but even with that I've made good progress. Today I'm going to wind up the last skein of the yarn I bought for it so I'll be ready to use it. Pray for me would you? This stuff tangles if you sneeze on it.

I'm so happy that you have found solace in your knitting. It is like an unexpected gift. :)

Isn't it great when a project is farther along then you thought? :0
