Today I'm thankful for, among a bajillion other things:
- Blue wool
- That I can knit
- And that knitting can give pleasure to others. I like that part.
- And the knitting has brought so many people in to my life that I might not have met through any other thing.
- And the internet, which allows me to share that knitting with those people that get it, because as much as my family tries, they are just not that into it.
Blocked again? What craziness is that? I just love to block so much that I thought it would be fun to pull out the bind off, rework it and then block it again. Truthfully, against my better judgement I worked the bind off that was written in the pattern on larger needles than the shawl was knitted and it was a hot mess. It took me a couple of weeks to give in to that truth, but I finally faced the music and ripped it out to bind off again using my usual suspended bind off on the needles I knit the rest of the shawl on. Much better. It was all so curly and wavy, ick!
This is my pensive look. I'm wondering what the heck else there is to say about this shawl. The pattern is well written and would be a pretty easy beginner lace pattern. You should go get the pattern and knit it. It is on sale right now! *All of the Through the Loops patterns are on sale until the 17th. That gives you more reason than just my recommendation to hop on over and get it. Acer is on sale, too! I've wanted that pattern, now is the time to get it. How about Ulmus? There's another one I've been putting off getting. Well, I'd better check my downloads to make sure I don't already have them. I've made that mistake before!
This is my second finish for 10 Shawls in 2010. I've finished a third and as I said earlier this week, I am currently working on shawls #4 and #5. Some people are way finished for the year. By double. Some people have a lot of knitting time.....
This last photo is closest to the color. But not perfect. Oh well.2010. Fifty-Five. 55. First a five then last a five. With no fives in between. With no anythings in between. Just Five.Five. No fours. I think I might be a little overtired.......
