My Ravellenic Games progress is almost disheartening. I cast on Friday night on the metro, travelling from my last happy hour with work to another friend’s going away party. I only achieved a few rows of progress, but it was enough to consider myself started. Saturday we took a mid-day break from packing to eat lunch and I got a few more rows done as I snuck in an episode of Doctor Who. Since then? Zero progress on the shawl, lots of progress on packing.
Tomorrow we will load the truck and be officially moved out of DC. It’s sad to leave all of this behind, but I just keep holding on to the fact that both Ty and I are moving on to bigger things. Over the next two weeks I’ll have plenty of knitting time as we settle into our new home, the Olympics ending the day before orientation for school starts. As much as the Ravellenic Games are about challenging yourself, I think this shawl will always be a little part of DC that I’ve managed to bring with me to New York. My choice of color for this shawl, ‘Cherry Blossom’, and the fact that it’s a DC dyer, was not an accident.
I might have a few more of these weepy, leaving posts, so here’s a cat.
Happy Ravellenic Games!
