This last week I heard the sad news that two of our local-ish yarn stores are closing their brick and mortar locations due to the pandemic. I know they have permission to open their shops but the restraints on numbers of customers in the shop and personal finances are too much to overcome right now. I have been working on finishing projects and using stash but this news does have me thinking about ordering a sweater quantity of yarn from another local shop. I know they have free shipping so it is a possibility. Just need to decide on a pattern.
I bound off, washed, and blocked my pandemic prayer shawl this weekend. Still need weave in the ends and take some pictures. I am working on Helen Stewart’s mystery shawl and doing a pretty good job of keep up with the clues. And because we have rain and grey skies, I have pulled out a color work sweater for evening TV knitting since I am at the round and round part of the body.
Slow and steady. No rush to finish. Just enjoying the process. This is a new story for me.
