Yes, well, the months fly by, don’t they. And then you’re in the middle of winter recovering from a stinking cold and wet slippers because you decided to take out the trash in the rain instead of waiting 5 minutes for it to stop, because as any Aucklander knows – the weather changes by the minute.
So what have I been doing. I’ve been taking the most extraordinarily long time to piece a crochet blanket together (done with mitred squares), and do the other half of the Chevron Blanket. While that happened, I somehow put down the sweater I was knitting and forgot to pick it up again, and the spinning is all but a memory – except for when I’ll have to spin up some more light contrast yarn for the Mitred Square Blanket.
However, I have been practising and playing my guitar pretty much every day. Unfortunately, due to poor posture and lack of attention to same, I wound up with a damaged rotator cuff. That kinda curbed the music and fibre pursuits for a bit, and I’ve discovered I’m rather ambidextrous with a mouse. The shoulder’s still giving me trouble, but it’ll heal with time, and I sure as hell haven’t stopped playing guitar. After all, there is a Martin with my name on it, patiently waiting for me come December.
I’ve also been scrutinizing my blog, feeling the drag factor of those early posts from (cripes!) 6 years ago. I’m of two minds as to whether to delete those old posts, a bunch of music posts where I voiced nothing but a brief opinion and a tracklist, or whether to just sit with it a bit longer. After all, this is my diary of events and sometimes it’s quite useful to go back. What do other bloggers do, I wonder – keep or cull?
