Weekend Planning

Today, before I left for my camping weekend, I blocked my shawl.

That's my bed. The only space in the apartment big enough to block a shawl on. Which is why I waited till I was leaving for a weekend!

Then, because it might rain this weekend, I packed another project to work on:

That's a toe. It's a toe for kilt hose #2 for James. The first one is nearly done, but we're at the point that I'm 'knitting to fit' and I have to check to see if it fits properly before I knit the garter band.

I think I've finally figured out how to knit socks without a pattern. So proud!

The Cove

My brother came to see me last weekend. Between making fun of each other, inhaling pancakes, mixing each other drinks and throwing each other off cliffs in Mario Kart, I actually managed to finish the last few rows and bind off my shawl.

It measures 37 inches across, and hasn't been blocked yet. I have to pull up my big-girl panties and figure out how to dye it, and set it to block. I'm so nervous. It's just hanging in my living room because I can't stop looking at it.
