Some of this is for the show that was put off at the coffee shop. They are waiting for Old Home day since their original weekend clashed with something else that was happening in the area. Since I've hit 18 shawlettes, 8 felted bags, and 16 market bags I'm going to walk away from the show knitting for a while. It sounds like a lot, but I'm sure they'd like more. I just really want to focus back on the 200. I'm up to 20 shawls out of 200, and I need to finish blocking and take pictures of the latest and then post them. It takes me about an hour to take the pictures, about an hour to edit them (meaning cut them down to size) and at least an hour to blog about them. So it may be next week before I get to them :(
Here's a quick photo chain of what I've been up to shawlette and shawl-wise.
|finally blocked out|
|there are 2 of these, one for the blog one for the shop|
These are also entering the blocking line up
While working on writing out the pattern for Autumn Glow, I realized that I hadn't explored fully what I wanted to do with it. So this is a test-knit blocking out
Then I started on these:
|Originally, there were 4 of these... guess who absconded with one?|
|look out, he's got dpn's hiding in his ears|
|number 2 and number 3|
|I found the shaping of the head a little off in this test knit & have since modified it.|
Anyway, computer troubles have been solved and work is about to become less frenetic. I'm dedicating one day a week to the stuffies for the next ~ 3 months. I'm hoping to get into a more regular blogging rhythm now that life is no longer creating fireworks.
Thanks to everyone who waited me out, and all those who make it to the bottom of this long post!
