Taking a break - from guest blogger Kelly Lightbeam
During my hiatus from LoG, I will be doing some comfort knitting. We are all still healing from the recent loss in our family, and I heartfully appreciate all the thoughtful comments that have been left for me. That said, I am doing really well! Everything has settled down now, and I want to knit something soothing for my husband's Aunt, who is having a very hard time adjusting to life without her daughter. My thoughts lie along the lines of a prayer shawl, and I bought some "Be Sweet" Bamboo yarn today (so soft!). It is a very beautiful green color, and if anyone has any pattern suggestions, I'd love to hear them! At this point, I'm considering knitting the Ginkgo Shawl, but I haven't cast on yet, so it's certainly not set in stone.
I'll be back to knitting more Leaves of Grass by the end of next week, but until then, I'm sending all my love! I will check in to see how the rest of you are faring on this wonderful pattern, and hope you are all doing well.
