I think you have figured out by now that my life has been in flux for the last several months. Summary: After selling our house in Germany on extremely short notice (like I got home on the 13th of Dec and we were OOT on a Lufthansa flight to SFO on the 18th…) everything was relocated sooner or later to Berkeley and I lasted about 7 weeks in one location.
As just about everything I had craft wise was in storage or somewhere buried in the garage, I started doing a lot of cross stitch. Hitting the road to Indian Subcontinent 10 Feb (which was more or less planned) and am still traveling. Brought along cross stitch (rather than knitting) which turned out to be impossible on either planes or buses.
Why am I telling you all of this? I am visiting friends in Adelaide. I raided Cat’s stash yesterday, scoring both yarn and needles (like all of us knitters she has lots of everything) and cast on a shawl (Earth).
Now if I can just manage to listen to an audiobook, knit and eat fresh pomegranates (picking off tree in garden) without staining anything – life would be perfect.
