Again, many thanks for all the kind notess.  Your words have touched me.

After not knitting at all for the past week I've now picked up the needles again:  a few rows of a pair of socks and a stealth project.  The stealth project is coming along quickly and I hope that it's fast enough.  It's a sweater.  The front and both sleeves are finished and I'm hurrying to complete the back.  More on it soon.

Knitters aren't crazy about unravelling a project but sometimes it's necessary.  I'm one of those weird people who don't mind ripping out my work if it means the reknitting will make the project better.  I came across this little video in which unravelling means moving forward, not backward.  It's a machine-knitted 2012 calendar and you unravel the days (they're in German) as you move throughout the year.  It's clever, and at the end of the year you have yarn for something new, perhaps a new calendar for 2013.
