One thing I am finding as I deal with my mother-in-law's death is that I have a very hard time sitting still when upset. I have scrubbed the mildew off of the shower ceiling, dusted the fins of the ceiling fan, vacuumed the baseboards, and washed every piece of laundry I can find.
I have also been knitting. I am working on a lace shawl, a bulky weight tunic that I started two years ago and put aside, and a sock weight cowl. I seem to find the mindless repetition of knitting soothing. This mourning may actually be a productive time. I am obsessively downloading patterns from the internet, planning all the possible projects to come. Unfortunately, I should be focusing on Batboy: The Musical for which I am designing the costumes. I know what I want it to look like but I am having a devil of a time concentrating on drawing the designs.
I have to find a project for some lovely hand dyed banana/silk yarn in a turquoise,blue and brown colour pathway. I had started a shell for my mother-in-law...sigh.
