Friday Night Knits

I'm hanging out tonight in front of the t.v., watching the Cardinals and knitting some more on my Kailyard Shawl.  I am so enjoying the four plain rounds, but before the night is over, I'll be back on the charts.

The shawl is now at 512 stitches.  I've added stitch markers every 8 stitches for the repeat.  I think I may have used almost every little stitch marker I have and a couple of big ones to mark off the repeats.

I normally am not this careful with a knit, but with all these stitches and in lace and lace weight yarns, I am not taking any chances.  I've battened down the stitches on my needle with a couple of point protectors.

And after a row of two of the new lace chart, I think I'll throw in a life line, just for good measure.  Earlier this week, when knitting on the Bumble Bees chart, I found a couple of dropped stitches.  I pulled them up successfully, but I'm not taking any chances.

On tap for tomorrow is a wedding, which means I'll be missing Saturday morning knitting with the Knit Wits, but, I'll enjoy not having to go anywhere until in later day.  Perhaps, I'll get a couple of new  repeats done on Kailyard then.

Stay cool this weekend if you are in Central Illinois.

You're coming along beautifully with the shawl.
90 and several rounds of thunderstorms, high winds are predicted for here Saturday.
