Crossing the Finish Line!
This photo happened completely by accident....no photoshop editing, no flash, just lots of sun bouncing around. I love it's ethereal quality. If only all my moments were as peaceful!
The knitting was done Friday night. Saturday: blocking. Sunday, I wore it to church. The few peaceful moments I did have were spent knitting this scarf. Mistakes happened when:
-friends were watching over my shoulder
-2 or more children were talking to me at once (an hourly occurrence, at least)
-the phone rang in the middle of a row
-the tech at my mamogram wanted to 'chat' about 'crafts' while waiting for my films to develop.
-My dog jumped onto the yarn
-Dick Button said something especially catty about an Olympic figure skate and I was forced to rebut out loud at the TV.
I intended to post this progress report last week:
And here's Saturday's view:
As you can see, the print table has found yet another good use. How did I ever live without it?!?
And Sunday morning:
A friend commented that the colors have a rosy cast on her computer. For those with the same effect, the colors are that of the beach: cream, sand, and blue. If I had it to do over again, I'd not run out of ancient discontinued yarn and make it about 6" longer. It's comfortable to wear, but there might need to be some fringe added in the future. Maybe in my 'free time'....yeah right!
Here's another picture....better view of the scarf, my rosacea, and my double chin. Yikes!
