Sorry guys, My weekend was a little bit crazy, my husband is getting a little bit jealous of the time I spend knitting. I’m not sure how to feel about that. The only thing that I can think of as a reason for him to feel this way is that he has been working insane amounts of overtime for the past few weeks. This is completely out of character for him.
As a result, I have spent most of my weekend trying to appease his need for family time. I did finish the third repeat of the Fiji lace wrap. I think I am going to shorten it considerably. the pattern called for 11 repeats but it is a 28 row pattern and I am only 5’3″. I think 7 repeats will more than meet my needs w/o making me feel like a mummy.
Also. in the miracle corner, my mom has actually asked me to make her a scarf. My mom has few flaws, but one of them has been an unnatural prejudice against knitting. I think it dates back to my great-grandmother and her love of mixing orange, brown, yellow, and purple into concoctions that would make your eyes bleed. So now, I am adding the shibori scarf to my list. It’s my first beaded project. Any advice is much valued. Remember when i said I was going to be selfish with my knitting this year? Apparently, I’m not as good as that as I thought. Except with strawberries and chocolate. Hope everyone has had a more productive week than me.
