Today did not go exactly as planned.

Not a catastrophe of epic proportions, but still, a bump in the road. How did I cope? I did what any knitter would do.

I cast on a new sweater.


Ahhh. New, soft, warm, cushy wool. A brand new pattern (new to me, anyway. The Must Have Cardigan…I confess to being sucked in by The Harlot Effect).

A fire crackling in the fireplace, snow falling gently outside, my daughters drinking hot cocoa and chamomile tea beside me at the table, and a fresh ball of Eco Wool awaiting a spotless future…All I needed was for my mom to show up and make me tomato soup.

All can be made well.
