I finished my As You Like It scarf I knit for a few weeks now off and on. All garter stitch. Used 25??? colors, lost count, of DMC 100% virgin wool from a huge bag for 5.00 I got back in the Summer at a junkin' store. I really like the colors and it's so ready for jeans, sweater and boots to accompany it.
And Miss Abigail is playing with her new Christmas toy and watching me.
We call him Tristan. I don't know how he got this name. But she loves him.
I mean. Really. Loves. Him.
It's not perfect but I like it just the way it is. It's actually about 72 inches long.
One day at a time as we get nearer to Christmas. Each day brings up a new opportunity to make a positive difference in this world, create new warmth, read more books, knit, stitch, and anything that gives us balance in our lives.
The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost (my favorite poem)
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence;
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I---
I took the one less traveled by.
And that has made all the difference.
I hope this finds you snuggly, warm, safe, and happy.
