Who Knew Not Knitting Would Be So Fun?

August 26th

Current project

Dear Meg,

I promise that three button wrap I told you I’d have done for your Christmas gift last year will be done by this Christmas. Well, “promise” is probably too strong of a word. Let’s say “hope.” Yes. I hope this wrap will be done soon. See, the problem is this: I took the wrap to Malawi to work on and kinda got distracted by all the awesomeness that is Africa. And then I took it to Colorado and thought I’d knit like a grannie when I had a quiet social life. And while my dance card was empty for a few weeks, there was simply so much to explore. There are these glorious mountains and countless trails. And Red Rocks. Music has never sounded so good. Food festivals, baseball games, the zoo, museums, kickball, road trips…

And perhaps the most fun distraction of all — apparently there are 6 dudes to every woman in this town. I swear I didn’t know that statistic before I moved. But let’s just say Menver is fabulous.

Two more skeins, lovely. Only two more. I promise. I hope.
