It is Fall again? What happened to Summer?

Well, this has been a very interesting couple of seasons for me. In May I was rushed to hospital for pancreatitis (pancreas swells and eats itself, non-medical definition) and it was a looong four days of pain and inactivity. I missed the last monthly meeting of the Seattle Weavers Guild (SWG) and the Sheep to Shawl activity at the Fair due to healing. Healing was a long process, 7 weeks before I felt “normal” again. I began knitting once I had the strength to do anything and let my weaving projects sit. I have become obsessed with knitting!

Summer came and went with the healing process, trying to walk again, and trying to figure out what to eat now that I had become, officially, a diabetic. I knitted on and it kept me focused on healing and on crafts.

Finally in September I measured out a warp for a “Fall Runner” for my dining room table. It is sleyed, but sitting, waiting for me to finish the process. Since I used to be a “full-speed ahead” kind of girl, I have slowed down to a “stay in the moment” kind of girl and this has been good for me. Although, this knitting has taken over my life!

Here is what I have finished since I started feeling better:

So, I still weave, but obviously knitting has taken over my life!!
