Still knitting, still waiting to see how much longer I’ll be in Accra. Almost three years now, though it was only meant to be two years. I don’t mind Accra, but living away from my husband is tough. Stressful too, not knowing how long this will continue, though I am lucky to have a job I like. Knitting helps, and I am getting back into daily exercise. No challenging knitting though, just easy meditative projects. This is the Bow-knit scarf by Katherine Burgess, which I knitted in plum once before.
