"Patience is power; with time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown."

-Chinese proverb

And the BMFA Silk Thread II becomes an Evenstar!

I want to cast on - badly!

But I'm being a good little knitter and swatching first.

Later gators...

I can't stand it! There's no current funding for silk thread (and there's none in my stash), so I can't KAL on Evenstar. Arrgh! I will, however, sign up so as to feel a part of things, especially of the Haiti effort.

While you all are enjoying Evenstar, ladies and gents, I'll be consoling myself by starting my long-awaited Byzantine project.

And Susan, your post yesterday was straight up accurate; I've been talking to my grandson a lot lately about being thankful for what we DON'T have to endure just as much for what we DO have. He's only seven, but I think he's getting it.

In that vein, I'm praying gratitude that I'm in the position of having to "make do" with Byzantine instead of Evenstar. This is hardly a tragedy, no?

That is beautiful yarn, Susan. I'm waiting for mine to get here. While at the grocery store, I was feeling grateful for the food in my cart and the fact that my children have never gone hungry. Our local store collects for the south jersey food bank on a regular basis and today they added the Red Cross. With so much to be thankful for, how can I say no? (I can't )

I could weep with envy! No I can't use silk but I am sorely tempted to enrol.... (No I haven't knitted a single shawl yet.....)
