Take 2 (on the knitting)

Ok, I tried the same pattern for the Pentacle washcloth and this one turned out much better. It comes out more clearly with purple than it did with grey.

Brief Update

I haven't written on this blog in ages. Let's just say that life got tough and I had to make some choices. That horrible situation with my job . . . I had planned to quit, then another job came along that I thought was going to be much better . . . but honestly I'm not happy with that either. At least I'm not in the abusive situation I was in before! Honestly, I would just love to move to a smaller, accepting community of Wiccans, Pagans, Tree-huggers, hippies or anything and get out of this rat race of consumerism and commercialism.

On a brighter note, I tried knitting a Pentacle Dishcloth. I found the pattern on a website by accident: Pentacle Cloth by Veronica. Her's looks quite nice in purple. I thought I should do it in wool, so I found some grey wool but it didn't turn out as nicely as hers. In face, it's hard to see the patten at all. Kind of a shame when you put all that work into it. I might try it again in another colour.
