I stayed up very late last night, but did finish the knitting on the blue Triinu shawl. Yeah!
This morning I blocked it. I love that something can go from this:
Look at this pattern – it amazes me that it can be made with yarn and sticks.
Of course, it apparently takes months. 🙂
I really pushed myself to stay focused on this and the blue sweater this week, I wanted them off my needles and in my wardrobe, and I wanted to work on other projects. As lovely as these are, they were getting to be tedious.
And now I am free to work on this project. And cast on one or two other things.
Life is good!
Here are a couple of non-knitting photos for you – a week ago we had a sunny day. And it was warm enough that I got off two shots before the camera batteries died of the cold. This is the best one. I don’t even know how to tell you how deep that snow is, except that when I stand on the ground, the lower deck rail in the near corner is above my shoulder. So what’s that? 4 feet or so on the ground? Ugh.
Here’s a photo of Allie. She has a new best thing – the minute I pull the purple internet cable out to log on, she comes flying, throws herself on it, rolls around and then goes to sleep. We like to say that Allie loves to be on the internet. But that’s just our lame joke. 🙂 Note that she is sleeping directly beside a very cozy basket bed. She’s some cat!
