“There is a new spirit of optimism,” my boss wrote this morning from Chicago, “with the majority of the US population.” A new spirit of optimism?! – Hard to believe.

He attached a paper headlined “Germany in free fall.” Free fall – that’s more of how I feel. Not even knitting works for me right now.

Is it a coincidence that I am working on the ZigZag scarf? Zigzag is what my thoughts have been all of last week. Zigzag. I am confused, in shambles, wondering how I (and most of the world) missed the story. Is it that we did not want to see it? Was it there at all? Zigzag. It was definitly a wake-up call. Wake-up to what?

It’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness,” Eleanor Roosevelt said. Hence, I started to look out for candles: there is definitly light on the Cozy Knits blog, with the #knitterspayitback intiative on Ravelry and all of Mairlynd‘s encouraging post on Instagram.

How have you been? Is there a light where you are? Would you be willing to share?

Ich habe dieses Jahr besonders früh mit der Weihnachtsstrickerei angefangen und war dann ganz stolz schon drei Projekte fertig zu haben. Dann habe ich angefangen nur für mich zu stricken und jetzt steigt die Panik wieder: Noch sooo viele weitere Personen sollen bestrickt werden. Hach, irgendwas mache ich immer falsch.
Dein gestrickter Weihnachtsbaum gefällt mir ganz besonders!
Viele Grüße, Marthe
