Not much to show around here at all as it's rather hard to take a photo of indecision.
I'm working my way down the foot of the sock substitute for Shur'tugal. I knew when I chose a very basic pattern for this that I would be bored with it. I am. However, the other pattern with all its twists was infuriating me and stressing me completely. Ailsa's yarn is, as always, lovely to use. It's knitting from the stash so that has to be good too.
In an attempt to liven myself up, I started another shawl with some of Ailsa's 50/50 merino and silk. Again lovely to use. However, I've tried four patterns and think I'm doing Travelling Woman again. My mind has certainly been travelling here, there and everywhere.
Then yesterday I realised the deep seat of why I felt like this. Settlement is due on my house sale next Monday. I'm sure everything will go through just fine, but I've been looking for places and discarding them. So the patterns have also been discarded. This too will pass, as the saying goes.
I had good news today. My legal bill which comes out of the settlement is much less than I expected. Some thousands of dollars less. It's still well under the average cost for the proceedings and I'm very grateful. I doubt whether my ex-husband will be as happy. He changed solicitors three, if not four times and would have had to go over things all those times. Still, that comes out of his share. I'm looking at three places on Saturday and am hopeful one will suit me.
