I have steadily participated in the UFO Resurrection project this year, though that vest that I "resurrected" awhile back continues to languish in an unfinished state... hmm. Think I can use it again as a UFO later this year?! Naah.. that would be cheating.
I could have ripped and re-knit the CeCe cardi I had originally intended to make, but back at the beginning of September, when I realized it was going to be way too big for me, I also had to acknowledge that I hadn't been enjoying the knitting. The yarn feels good to work with, the design was cute and the edging a very sleek, built-in finishing touch, however the lacy pattern and I just never clicked. Sometimes, I grab right on to a lace stitch and can catch every almost-mistake, and other times, I suffer the whole way. I decided not to re-suffer... but move on. Lots of ripping and rolling involved.
Then, on Sunday night after carefully swatching and measuring (I DID do that before, just picked a size larger than I should have been wearing), I cast on for this summery top:
The Lutea Lace-Shoulder Shell will make a nice top to wear to work on the days when I am at the yarn shop.. and the Calmer color (which looks pretty washed out in my photo above) matches two skirts I have, so that I can look like a savvy yarn saleswoman. Now, to get some knitting happening!
Last Minute Addition for Sallee (somehow, I wasn't surprised...)-
You are The Lovers
Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.
The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.
Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that's actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can't understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.
