Here we are again!
When I posted last week I was sick but determined to see my Sam play in one of his last concerts (of his high school years) and I am happy to say I did make it. I was so glad I did as the music was magnificent. The Bach piece was oh-so beautiful and since Bach is my favorite composer I was most delighted.
Then I spent the rest of the week in bed.
Well, technically not in bed, but home from work sick. I watched a ton of trashy tv and knit.
And because of all that knitting time, I have a finished object to show you all. :)
My Sugared Violets Shawl:
I am delighted with it~
I have been working on a couple of other objects but am not feeling too inspired by them right now. The first one is this Jane cardi I am making for Grandy Lyddie--but may end up being for Grandy Millie for her birthday at the end of April. The construction of this sweater is a little different and called for picking up stitches--a skill new to me. Well after reworking that part 3 or 4 times, I finally got the stitches picked up to my liking but I am short about 10 stitches across the back and I am not sure how or why. So, it was tossed into the timeout corner last night and I will need to sit with it and do the math on it and try to fix it without ripping back again--
You know? Creative knitting.
While the sweater languished in timeout last night, I picked up my Greta Kitty.
All I have left to knit is the tail.
Then assemble and embroider the face.
And we all know how much finishing work excites us knitters.
Thus, it sits here today mocking me.
Why don't I start a new project you might be thinking?
Well, Michele (Knit Purl Hunter) releases her first clue in the new shawl mkal on Thursday and I am just waiting for that to start--the Rylie yarn showed last week for it is sitting here just waiting!
That is it folks--but I leave you with some inspiration. (not Sam's group as there no recording available yet)
