the second new moon
For those involved in TUSAL - the totally useless stitch-along - the new moon necessitates an update. My scrap yarn jar looks quite full thanks in no small part to my scrappy lengthwise scarf. It has been handy to have all these scraps near at hand. I don't have to look far for a bit of scrap yarn for a provisional cast on, or to move thumb stitches onto scrap yarn for knitting later.
At this new moon, the sun and moon are in Aquarius - symbolized by the waterbearer. As explained by Molly Hall:
At the New Moon, we are deluged with fresh water of life and wisdom. This is freeing, and Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, keeps each of us, and humanity from stagnating in murky pools, or from where the flow of life has been intentionally dammed up.
Over the next four weeks until the next new moon my plan is to clear out all those projects "stagnating in murky pools". For me, February is going to be a month of Work-in-Process Wrestling. Who's with me?
