After three weeks, this shawl is not even back to where it was then. As you may recall, I tore it way back because of a join problem and a blip in an edge that was annoying me. Tonight, after an afternoon of working on the lace bit and ripping it back, I think I am finally on point with it now. But sheesh, I'm a fairly decent knitter and this isn't the first time I've knit this pattern. It may be that I have a couple of other knits that are calling me, but I have not succumbed to them yet. I promised myself that I would concentrate on this one first.
But, I've given it as much time as it is going to get tonight. I need a diversion. First, I'm going to get the border stitches done to my Kimono Shawl. If I get at least that much done, then I can play with the pattern and see if it is something that can be done in public with conversation going on around me.
Lastly, I can knit on my swatch. I've pretty much narrowed this one down as to what it wants to be.
I'm going to use EPS and knit a pullover and when I get to the top, I think I'm going to convert it over to Kate Davies' Fintry from her latest book Yokes. I might decide on the cardigan, I'll give that some thought while knitting my swatch.
My watermelon sox need a bit of love (I am finally at the heel), but if I want to have these done by the end of the month, I'd better get a move on.
Since I am off tomorrow (Martin Luther King Day) and I can sleep in tomorrow, I think I'll pull up something to watch and do a bit of non-pattern, non-lace, non-have to stay focused on anything knitting!
I love Sunday nights when I don't have to work on Monday!
