You might expect me to say I'm plodding or plugging along (still) on my Hanging Vines stole. But it doesn't feel that way. Each and every stitch is still a joy. If I could sit and knit for hours, this would be my choice. There is no denying the beauty of the yarn or how much I enjoy knitting the pattern. Five balls complete and the enjoyment of knitting has not diminished. Three more balls to go before she is on the blocking board. My only question about continuing (to post), would be if it becomes boring to you, dear reader. But, I do feel it is still blog worthy.
You can see the pattern well in this picture.
Motivation also continues for the shawl, as I wrap this beautiful yarn around the needles and watch it create an amazing pattern.
Here she is again hanging out at Silver Lake last Sunday.
Now for some Blogland updates.
Nathania has set a date! Congratulations, grrlfriend.
Carole is having a contest, ala moi...comment and win yarn (still more to be given away here, too).
Shelby has one more week! Well, now only 6 days, but then we know new babies have a mind of their own. We're waiting for you Appleseed!
Annie has received a 158 squares for John's memorial afghans. Grrlfriend, are you going to put them together all by yourself!?
Donna wants you to find something beautiful within a mile of your home and post it to your blog. What a great idea!! Here's my picture:
It may not look like much but, then again, it might send you screaming. It is a beautiful wasp hive. It looks like pale gray papermache and is constructed in swirls, which form a spiral pattern. It hangs from the deck above my front door, but not one wasp has bothered us. I'm sure management will remove it shortly. Nature is beautiful and I wish they had picked the nearby tree to nest in, instead of my stoop.
