It has been hard to find something worthy to blog about. Sure, lots of things are going on, but to sit down and actually put something into an interesting context...that takes some concentration.

I have been knitting. Still flying high from the Acorn sweater, knitting continued on with Wendy Knits' tribute to Elizabeth Zimmerman's 100th birthday Shetland Pi Shawl. I double-stranded some incredibly beautiful Briar Rose Angel Face and went down a path that led to casting off over 1100 stitches. I thought it would never end! The shawl is ready to be blocked and every night leaves me wondering where in the world this monster can be pinned out and left for a day or two.
October 1st marks the beginning of Socktoberfest and Kristen Kapur's Through the Loops mystery sock will be the project again this year. Last year's sock is a favorite and the yarn for this year nearly matches in color.

The closing of Bloglines nudged me to finally find another way to track blogs. Google Reader allowed easy import of my tracking file. It is very pleasing to have those blogs there waiting to be read, but there hasn't really been time to peruse them.

Physical therapy has taken a lot of time. My calf muscle was strained playing tennis the first week of day play. 3 visits a week for 3 or 4 weeks now has left me irritable at not having the regular activity that brings such satisfaction. It is better and we began strengthening it last week. The first few times back on the court were questionable, but there have been a few wins (one miserable loss) to boost my confidence.

So, I am not sure these tidbits leave you with anything useful. Just sitting down and putting it out here has helped me slot my thoughts in a more organized manner. The last drop of coffee has been drained from my mug and the day began long ago with Darby nuzzling me to get up out of bed. There must be something that needs attention.

I am glad you are feeling better.

My poor Pi Shawl has been pushed to the side as I fear I have no where to block it even when I do finish it.
