Dream

Last night I dreamed that I finished knitting a lace shawl (stole?) for myself. It was quite large, and although it was lacy, it nicely kept the office AC off my shoulders. I decided I was now a lace-shawl person, and should start knitting them more often. I should also start wearing clothes that look good with lace shawls.

The funny thing is, I've never knit a lace shawl for myself, and knitting lace drives me batty. However, the dream was so real, I still feel slightly confused that I don't have that shawl/stole. (Is it actually a stole if it's rectangular? The one in my dream was rectangular, although I thought of it as a shawl.)

I think I was also taller and thinner in my dream. Perhaps I was having someone else's dream?

In slightly related news, the AC exchange at Canadian Tire went incredibly smoothly, and I now have a working AC in my kitchen. :) (Yes, I know the temperature has dropped considerably. Sorry.)

..maybe a wrap? Aren't they rectangular...

Hmmm... perhaps...

I usually think of stoles as being a subset of shawls -- that is, a stole is a long, rectangular shawl.

What, you don't like lace knitting? Is that allowed? ;-)

Makes sense. :)

I'm a rebel, and I'll hate knitting lace if I want to. ;) There's not much I'll shy away from, but lace really gets the better of me.

(For years, I hated hemming pants too. Something about hemming pants put me in an incredibly foul mood. I don't claim to be logical.)

If you were a little kid, I would say that you are going through some big developmental change (seems to cause vivid and strange dreams as the child "works it out"). Do you think you are learning something complicated? Heading towards some epiphany? Or life change? Maybe the fates are telling you that you are ready to try lace now. Or maybe just that people with working a/c often appreciate a light lace shawl?

Hmmm... no idea... but all possibilities. ;)
