This has been an interesting week and I thought it fitting to open the mail and find this book at the end of a day filled with a lot of What if? conversations. Yup. I live very near the recent Coronavirus outbreak. On Sunday there was a run on toilet paper and canned goods at many of the local stores. It was strange to see rows of empty shelves and shopping carts filled with provisions. I’m not sure what people were thinking (I just needed some noodles and coconut milk for dinner) but I am sure there was a lot of overthinking going on.
I am not trying to diminish the severity of the situation; not trying to be callus. I do think there are a lot of folks who need to take a deep breath, wash their hands (the way we used to get rid of germs before they created hand sanitizers), and settle down. I am happy to say that I have another knitting project to keep me in knitting as meditation mode. I finished the color work yoke on my Engi. I need to find a smaller cord so I can finish the short rows and neck edging. Then I will go back and knit the body and sleeves. I may also have pulled yarn to join Vicki in a knit along.
Off to link up with Kat. Happy Wednesday and please wash your hands!
