Wow. Where has the time gone? It’s been so busy lately, and whatever free time I’ve had has been spent with some yarn. The non-sick free time, that is. I was laid low for about a week with some fatiguing tummy bug. Good side was that I lost six pounds in a week. Shame that once I started eating again too much came back. Oh well.
I did finish the shawl I was working on, and was able to block it in enough time to give it to my mom on Mother’s Day:
Blocking really helped the shawl – the detailing really came out once I pined it on the table. I cheated a bit, and used a towel under some gingham material that was clamped to the table. It worked wonders. I would have liked a bigger checker pattern, but they didn’t have any material at the store when I went. The smaller grid will work, it’ll just be a bit more difficult to block too.
I am almost done with the straps on Ashlin’s car blanket. I should finish tonight. They even have button holes! Once that’s done, I’ll move on to either Teagan’s car blanket or the one for Ashlin’s bed.
More tomorrow, once I get this car blanket done. I really want it to be done. There’s also a draft or two that need fleshing out, finishing…
