During the commercials, I may do a bit of packing, and cleaning of the room that Baby Boy B vacated yesterday when he moved into his new house. That room is going to need a major overhaul in the coming weeks. (It was his room, so no, I never cleaned it, I just shut the door.) I sure am going to miss those walls. And no, I did not pick out the color, he did many years ago. As I recall, it was a basketball team color.
During the race, I am also going to take time off from my Birds Nest Shawl. I have finished the first section of lace and now it is on to the straight bit of knitting. I have to say those markers I put in every repeat truly helped. It may be a bit excessive on the markers, but sometimes I still have problems counting to 11.
This morning, while it is quiet, I am going to try and see where I went wrong with my Stora Dimun Shawl. I am off by one stitch at the end of the row. It may be time to add some markers to it as well. I surely would like to have this one done by Camp to wear.
My race project for today is kind of a secret, so this is all I am showing for now. It is for me, I'm just not ready to show it in it's form yet. I can tell you it is super soft and something I treasure as it was a gift from my friend and fellow knitter. I hope I am doing it justice.
One of the things I have to remember when I go over to the house today, is to get a better bag than a plastic bag for my special knitting project.
And finally for today, a couple of moving pictures. I have peonies of my own! And they are beautiful.
Enjoy the race! Or your Sunday, whatever you are doing today.
