13 Weeks

It's hard to believe I've been home for thirteen weeks. I'm doing weekly grocery shops, and I've gone to a few small local businesses, but cases are starting to ramp up and we're entering our first peak here, so I'm back down to weekly grocery shops only. I haven't seen new projections, but ones from April showed us hitting our peak around the end of June. I'll be working from home for sure for another eight weeks, and then we'll see.

If you're protesting, keep up the good work. Thank you so much for what you're doing. If you're not protesting, please keep supporting protesters—donate to bail funds and protest medics and keep calling your local representatives and officials. Black lives matter, and we need to end police brutality, over-policing, and mass incarceration.

On to the knitting: my tank top sample is done and the pattern is with my tech editor. I'm hoping to get photos taken either today or over the weekend, and I'm really pleased with how it came out. My current projects are two shawl samples, including this ribbed shawl I started a while back. I'm past the halfway point on it now, and I'm really pleased with how it's knitting up. It's definitely not a summery shawl, but as much as summer takes up a lot of my mental space (I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned it here, but I have summertime seasonal affective disorder, which lowkey sucks) the reality is winter here lasts six months, easily, so it will be nice to have this waiting in a few months when temperatures start to dip again.
