You know this whole focusing on one project thing really is a good idea. Do you see what’s missing in this picture?
No needles! I mean it – it is amazing what spending time on one project can do! So after I cast off, wove in the ends, I let it soak for a bit…..
And now its upstairs, all blocked out – and I’ve checked it twice already to see if its dry yet (and its not)…
I will say – it is pretty big. I only did 13 repeats and I’m so glad I didn’t do the full 17 – it would just be too long. I can’t wait to unpin it though and see how it really came out.
So I was thinking today – Mother’s Day is on May 11. Today is April 11. Do you think its enough time to make a Forest Canopy shawl and mail it to California? If I use big yarn (and my mother is small so I don’t need to make a huge one) I think I just might make it. I was thinking that it would be really nice in the Manos silk blend I bought. What do you think? Inspired or crazy?
I’m so glad its Friday – this week has just been killer at work. I’m off Monday and Tuesday because Larry’s birthday is Tuesday (and what’s the point of working on Monday if you are off Tuesday?) so I’m so happy. Nothing like a long weekend, eh?
OK, off to finish up working. I should have a dry Hypoteneuse to show you later this weekend – and maybe even a new shawl….or is that crazy?
