My recovery time last week yielded a lot of shawl progress. Not so much this week. I had scheduled overtime that made it difficult to get too far. I am about 6 rows away from completing chart five. I have not been bringing the shawl to stitch n bitch. It requires so much concentration that I can't work on it when we all get together. I need to get more audio books as well. I just can't do this in front of the TV either.
No knitting monogomy this time. I am sort of in-between projects in the non-shawl catagory. I've put myself on a yarn diet so I am in the area of creative pairing of yarn I own and projects I would like to do. I also have some baby knitting before me. The first tot is due this month, then November, March and June. Lots of babies coming. I need to dye some of my yarn to get the right colors for the first project. Amy suggested using the Witon paste cake colors with a vinegar mordant. I think I will give that a shot, especially since I already own the dye. I'll probably work on that in my three days off in the middle of the week.Yeah, sucky schedule this week. To date, it is the crowning acheivement in my manager's passive-aggressive campaign against me since he found out I was leaving to go to the new store. I work Sunday, Monday, Friday and close on Saturday, my last day in that store. I was so angry I could spit acid when I found out but enough of that subject.
See the miracle that has happened in our home! They are on the same cushion and LO! they are TOUCHING!!!!! And this phenomenon has been witnessed more than once!
