I'm as amazed as you are.
I should have stuffed the shameful bag in the back of The Abyss and cast on for something new by now.
I'm not sure where this determination to finish things has come from. But I'm going to ride it out until it passes.
I blocked a shawl.
And I fell in love with lace all over again. This thing was a fuzzy holey mess pre-blocking. And it was even worse once I got it wet. At first I couldn't make heads or tails out of it. I vaguely remember knitting it, and I have absolutely no recollection as to what the pattern was supposed to look like. I finally identified the top edge and pinned it out from there. It was magic. Blocking is a special sort of wizardry. Transformed from a lump of wet fiber, delicate shapes appeared before my eyes. I love this shawl. And I want to knit more lace. Tons more lace. If I weren't so busy with other things I would be knitting a new lace shawl RIGHT.NOW! Perhaps something from Boo Knits. I hate being the kind of grown up who honors grown up obligations.
It is over rated.
And for day 10...I am...
enjoying a quiet and all too fleeting moment.
As soon as I took this picture Squishy woke up and demanded to be fed, and played with, and kissed, and loved.
It is a hard life I tell ya.
Two hours later and she is now back in her swing, and I've got some secret knitting to get done while the getting is good.
Never enough hours in a day.
