Hoping for Snow?
As of last night the cable lace scarf/wrap thingy is finished!! Here it is hanging over the back of the chair in it's unblocked state. It was a quick knit with few glitches. I did mess up my count of the crochet edge a little but hey it was late and "Lost" was on with mmmm............Sawyer.
Ok, I'm back from my little Sawyer moment. To the left we have a fine example of my crappy blocking skills. I don't know if there is a trick to it but the only space that I have is the basement on the thick carpeting in the "TV area". It seems that I get one area pinned and then another spot starts to shift and pull out. Oh well, it's about as straight as it's going to be although I am sure that I will be going down there after I post to shift a few pins around. I used my blocking wires on the straight edge as it's stockinette and wants to curl up. I hope that blocking will eliminate this problem.
I am also hoping that we'll have if not snow at least a little chilly weather so that I can squeeze a couple of wearings in before I have to pack up all my woolies. Today was absolutely frigid here. I could have used a heavier scarf and possibly even my mittens since I ended up parking in BFE at work today. That trek across the parking lot can be pretty unpleasant. Now the plan is to finish up the Kevat shawl and depending on how soon spring hits us either the Argosy scarf from Knitty or socks in some sort of lacy cuff pattern.
