It's time again to start thinking about knitting for Lent. Ann is hosting 40 Days for Others again, and of course I have jumped aboard. It seems as if I have been doing a lot of charity knitting the last couple months and this will just be a continuation of the same. Ann has a couple organizations that she is collecting for, but you are welcome to knit for the charity of your choice. I've gone through my stash and I will be able to knit some hats and fingerless mitts with what I've got on hand. A good choice, since I am trying to decrease the size of the stash on hand. I have felt for a long time that Lent ought to have its' positive disciplines, not just giving things up in a negative sense. (Although I could certainly do with giving up kettle chips.)Isn't this an interesting photo? It has sort of a Lenten feel to it, I think. Daughter Annie took this in Utah a couple years ago. She likes to work with black and white and sepia tones. I would like to go back hiking on that trail. I've logged 45 miles for Runagogo so far; it's been a good discipline to get me off the couch each day.I'm going to give Joe's socks a rest for a couple days. The right arm is feeling a little too sore for my liking. I've decided to give up the Harebell Lace-Pumpkin socks, probably permanently. The yarn isn't working out as well as I would like and I don't feel that I want to spend anymore time on them. I'm not frogging them yet, but I'm just going to put them away for now. I just don't feel like spending that much time on something I don't think I would be happy with.Stay warm and healthy, everybody!
