Well. 2021. And I find myself back in Lockdown. Post-surgery. Post-mothers-funeral.
It’s been a lot of a year to say the least. But I haven’t forgotten you all. I just had to put you all on the back burner for a while.
But what can I say.
I am knitting. It was a hard journey in 2020 to knit- moving house and lockdown added to these stresses… as well as a wealth of strange injuries. One chopped part of a finger off… another nearly left me blind (and does still plague me with eye fatigue, light disturbances and migraine triggers). Then Mum took a downward turn. And eventually died. Then just last week I was back in hospital with surgery for Endometriosis. Annnnnd now it is another covid related lockdown here in New Zealand.
But, I am doing well… mostly.
I have been filming and uploading a lot on my theatre channel on YouTube, and now I am making an effort to edit and upload things filmed for the Knit Guru channel – which has been left silent in the background for a long time. I have a “what I’ve been knitting” video up, a review of a knitting book, and a yarn haul loaded this morning. I have a few things I want to review – a couple of patterns from Wool and the Gang and The Woven as well as yarn from a few places I wanted to try.
There are patterns I want to create but for the time being, my brain is still a bit too adled to get into too much. But soon they will flow. I have a few to just tidy up before publishing… my lockdown slippers still need to be loaded and a mobius strip scarf pattern which will involve a video to show a few things methinks.
Anywho… back. Sort of. Hopefully. And I hope this pandemic is treating you kindly.
