A little yarn therapy helped too. It's a good thing we'll close on the sale of our house and be debt free next week because I keep spending all our money on yarn. But hey, yarn is cheaper than the mental institute and that skein is ready to knit. No winding needed. And, I have the Reyna pattern already printed. I'm feeling a lot better today.
Knitting group was quite productive. Besides making me feel better and helping me de-stress, I was able to finish the Martha Shawl.
I still have quite a bit of the Sunset (the pink & yellow) from Dying for Art but I ran out of the Carbon from Knitted Wit. Since there was so much Sunset left, I thought about knitting some kind of lacy border but ... dark place. I took the easy way out and knit an i-cord bind-off instead.
The shawl isn't quite as long as I'd hoped it would be, but then, I haven't blocked it yet. Garter does stretch a lot when blocked. It may even be too long after blocking!

I really love the way it looks with a shawl cuff, although I definitely need to buy myself a black cuff. The brown leather one isn't really cutting it.
