Hiya friends!

I am sure you are feeling the same as me and are completely thankful for your yarn, your needles and any other crafty endeavors you may enjoy.  As one who suffers from asthma, I am pretty scared of the severity of this virus.  I feel and pray for those with compromised immune systems, I pray for our scientists and leaders, and I pray for the safety of those traveling to get to those they love.  I pray for the lonely, the depressed, the ones who are so scared and don't know what to do.  I wish I could wrap my arms around them.  Instead I will send them all the light and love I can.  I hope they remember that we are all connected.  In ways that are terrifying and beautiful.

My son, Andrew, arrived home yesterday and my other two will be traveling across the county together,  making their way home on Thursday.  I won't be settled until they get here.

I have already started the social distancing and trying to do my part.  Staying home, for me, is not a hard thing to do.  I quite like it as it feeds the homebody in me.  Of course, like many, I hope I have enough food to feed my family.  (I still don't understand the quantities of toilet paper.)

However, with the world drastically slowing down, it adds anxiety and uncertainty that we can not always control.  I plan on keeping busy to relieve some of that anxiety.  I plan on getting to things that I have been wanting to do.  Like organizing my yarn, my notions, my projects.  That should take at least a day or two!  I plan on finding my zen through mediation and of course the rhythmic act of knitting.  Thank you GOD!

Last week I swatched for Miromesnil.  Swatching usual isn't my jam.  Especially if I am using the yarn that the pattern calls for.  However, because I substituted a different yarn, swatching is an important step in the process.  Just as washing hands is an important step in this process of trying to prevent the spread of Covid-19.  So, wash up and keep on knitting!

P.S.  Remember to moisturize!  xx
