At Least Someone's Relaxing
Mmm... Detachable human fur....
Shawl is now up to row 190-something. I may need a shoulder reconstruction at the end of this, but By G*d I will Finish This Thing. For a progress photo, you'll have to wander over to the Team Midwest blog - the button on the sidebar will take you there.
Something I have learned while knitting this shawl:
- When cursing my Addis for having prematurely lost their slick shininess, I should check both the Addis and my hands for residual traces of Cadbury Creme Eggs. Ahem.
I also learned the depths of my self-control last night. We were sitting on the couch, I was knitting, Dave was watching the NBA all-star game. I was concentrating on lace charts. Dave was concentrating on relaying as many basketball stats as he could without drawing breath. "Lebron James...blah blah blah...Rasheed Wallace....blah blah blah....Kobe Bryant...blah blah blah..."
And I DIDN'T turn to him sweetly and say "You know I love you, but for the LOVE OF YARN if you keep spouting basketball at me when I'm trying to knit lace, I will garotte you with my Addi's!"
Good thing for the day: The pimple on my chin has almost gone (hey, you gotta take your good things where you can find them!)
Bad thing for the day: I've run out of Cadbury Creme Eggs.
