..there is reason to knit for friends when they are well, when you want to let them know you care. Sending hugs, and love, is never a bad idea. This skein of Casbah wanted to be a small shoulder shawl and the simply lovely Traveling Woman fit the bill. The yarn is deliciously soft, which is perfect for keeping ones neck safe from cool fall breezes. Milkweed was knit with the same yarn in a rich blue and it's quite delightful.
As it turns out, Sock Mojo turned his back and hightailed it out of town. It might be because I wasn't feelin' any love for him and I just couldn't get into sock knitting. The call of lace was loud and he knew my attention had waned. Poor guy just could not compete. A lace project, small and portable as a sock, presented itself, and its proper accompaniment (the yarn) also became clear. It felt quite right to eschewed Mr. Sock Mojo and turned to my love of lace. One must follow ones heart, so...there you have it. Plain and simple, lace wins.
