Thermal, she grows! I'm really enjoying this knit. It's actually going very fast, considering the US3 needles. I'm finding the pattern very theraputic. I have to get a few rows done each day, even if I have to stay up late to do it. Unlike other knits, it's not about finishing but about doing. I have to knit a few rows because I need to do it. What with all the stuff going on around here - the little job I picked up, the moving (not me, my brother but I was very important in the planning), the vacationing, 3 days worth of Mother's Day celebrating - I've really needed the escape. I'm a person who needs time by herself in relative quiet to think and unwind every day. Thermal is my meditation.
