WIP Wednesday

Lately, with it being so cold out, I’ve been making my Beloved’s scarf my priority knitting project.  It’s easier for me to knit on larger needles with my hands being cold, so I’ve made a lot of progress on this.

I’ve gotten to the section where I’ve added the fourth color, a royal shade of blue.  In this picture, you can see the color differences between colors two and three better.  There’s a few areas where I messed up, like when I had to pick my stitches back up after ripping out a few rows, but as long as the stitches aren’t falling down, I’m okay with leaving in a mistake or two.

There might end up being a solid royal blue section, since I don’t have much of the blue-grey yarn left, and I have even less of the navy.  I’ll see where I am when I get to that section of the scarf.

Other Ghosts

I recently bought The Awakening’s new album, Chasm, and the first song resonates eerily with my mental illness.  I don’t know if that’s what the song is meant to be *about,* but I’ve discovered that it’s comforting to hear music that makes me feel less alone.

There are other ghosts and voices 
Melodies and noises 
Beneath the dust 
Beneath our time 

There are other lies and secrets 
Foreign knives and tickets 
Behind these walls 
And ties that bind 

The turn of the days 
As the circus became your only life 

Oh the turn of the days 
And the whispered delays and all you denied 

And all I wanted 
Is all I need to survive 

There are other ghosts and people 
Jerrichos and steeples 
Will you and I belong? 

There are other lies and takers 
Borders and forsakers 
Will you and I belong? 

Oh with the light of these days 
Oh we fall and we break 
And we do not understand 

You’re as pure as the tears 
That you gave to the dreams 
That you could not understand 

And all I wanted 
Is all I need to survive 
To survive 
To survive 

There are other ghosts and voices 
Melodies and noises 
Beneath the dust 
Beneath our time
