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?

I'm totally with you on finishing things up. I can commit to this BUT, I can make no guarantee whatsoever that there won't be more things on the "to finish up" list at the end of the month. To me, it's not a numbers game. Something done is something done - regardless of how many new things also get started.

Sounds like a good plan. I only have two things to finish -- my socks and my stitch project, But, I'm hoping to have them both done by the next TUSAL.

I will get at least one of the two projects that are on hiatus done by the end of the month . The baby blanket for Stella is a must finish . The other , a shawl that I began months ago , maybe not . I've lost the mojo for that ...

Oooh WIP wrestling sounds like a plan. I've got two sweaters, two pairs of socks, a shawl and a Beaker on the go!
