I don't think I'm going to have enough yarn for the edging. I haven't even turned the first corner yet and it took half a ball of yarn to get this far. I have one ball left. I'm going to call Jamieson and Smith tomorrow and order some more, but I don't think it will get here in time for me to finish this project up before the fair.
You know, I don't care as much as I used to. I'll still have a beautiful blanket sooner or later. The dyelots might not match, it might not get a ribbon, but I'll still have a lovely piece of knitting and sooner or later I'll make the perfect shawl.
I think it may be that Dexter is helping me to be a more relaxed person. He makes me laugh, he makes me exercise, and he helps me to live in the moment. I have a very good head on my shoulders, but it does like to spin. By that I mean that I get ideas in my head that go round and round and wind me up. Once upon a time, I used to think about food all the time. More recently it has been knitting. But now, when I'm with Dexter on a walk, I have to be present in the moment and I'm learning to extend that to other parts of my life. I really like being the more mellow me.
On the other hand, it could just be that I'm still relaxed from vacation..... What do you think?
