Last week I cast on for Absinthe and I am about halfway through the first sock. It is my first toe-up sock and I really don't think I like it very much. I got halfway through the foot and ended up ripping the whole thing out because I messed up on the cables. Now I am contemplating ripping out the entire thing. I'm just not feeling it and the idea of having to knit the second sock really doesn't do it for me. I have to come up with another pattern to use with the Flat Feet I'm using for Absinthe.
I've also been working on Cookie A's Twisted Flower pattern. It's a beautiful and very well-written pattern like all of Cookie A's patterns. It is slow going though. I have only been working on it when I go to my knitting group on Tuesday mornings and I just started the heel flap on the first sock.
In general, I've been feeling a bit out of sorts lately. Patrick being gone so much is really wearing on me. I'm pretty lonely during the week and the time I spend with him on the weekends is just not enough for me. I try to keep busy and now that it's spring, I will be getting out more often. This past winter, of all the winters we've spent in New Hampshire, had really inspired me to hibernate. I just did not want to get out of the house more than once a day. I'm glad winter is over. Hopefully, I will be able to see Patrick more often some day soon.
