I went for my second test today – a CT scan. It was supposed to take just a little bit, but they decided to do it another way – and I ended up being there 3 hours. Good thing I took the morning off, eh? It did give me a lot of time to knit, though, and I am halfway through a sock. I am constantly reminded what a good thing knitting is – I didn’t mind the wait at all!
When I got home from the hospital, and before I logged into work, I took a few minutes to block this….and after checking it every 30 minutes, it was finally dry….
Isn’t that amazing? I just love seeing how lace totally changes once its blocked. And I love this scarf!
I think I’ve mentioned this once (or twice) before, but this really is a great pattern – I loved knitting it, and it was very easy to memorize so I actually knit it on the train in the morning. Anything lace I can knit at 6:00 a.m. without a lot of coffee is a good lace pattern! It went so fast that I was a little sorry to finish it…
I got this yarn in a swap, and was never sure what to do with it. I’m so glad I used it for this – it is just perfect for the pattern. It is a little heathered and has some red tones to it – very pretty. And it is very soft – a pleasure to work with. I would recommend it – and you can’t beat the price!
Cieara had off school today so I wrestled her into modeling it…but I couldn’t get it wrapped around her the right way (she was very uncooperative as a model today). But I think it still looks pretty with a shawl pin, don’t you? The sides are a little pointy because I didn’t spend enough time weaving the blocking wire through…but I sort of like it. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it – it may go into the pile for gifts, or I may keep it for myself….
This little scarf really helped build some confidence in my ability to do lace. I can really see myself knitting something a bit more complicated or bigger next…although I sort of like doing these small scarves – so nice to finish things fast! And Anne has so many nice scarf patterns…
Well, two more days to this week, and then a three day weekend. Yea! I hope you are having a good week, and that we get to the weekend fast!
