who would have thought it - knitting
I'm not up to concentrating much at the moment and this will be very simple. A border of garter stitch, increases on right side rows and purls on the wrong side. Yarnover, knit 2 together across the row when the fancy takes me. It's the knitting for when I'm not knitting. If it's big enough when I run out of wool and cast off, I'll leave it. Otherwise I'll use a toning colour and pick up some stitches around the edge and make a border.
Saturday was the first open house before my former home goes up for auction later in the month. DIL thought I ought to go at some time as a form of closure. So I went with middle son and his three children, eldest is eleven. I wasn't looking forward to it at all.
There were a lot of people there, which is good. Some changes were sort of OK, new fence was good. Some were horrible. I was undone when I walked into my former bedroom which had been beautiful. There was my former husband folding clothes. I thought occupants were asked to leave for such inspections.
I got outside but felt really bad and my eleven year old grandson patted me on the arm telling me everything will be fine. Rationally, I can agree with him, but I wasn't terribly rational at the time.
So my concentration is currently shot to pieces.
