Remember "my" car-to-drive-around-once-it-gets fixed up that got purchased recently?
Well, take a look at it now:
And as a side note, today as we were discussing plans for our Saturday - mine being "go to the yarn shop for the knit-a-long", his being "go in the garage" - he happened to mention that if I wanted to help him in the garage, I could. Since it's "my" car. That I didn't have any inkling that I wanted. But which will be really cool to drive around in if it happened to get fixed up and was available for me to drive. Hmmmm. I'll think about it.
In Knitting News:
I finished two projects for upcoming classes that I will teach at The Spinning Room.
Project the first: Little Coffee Bean Cardigan (click there for the FREE pattern)
Project B: The Trousseau Shawl
Here it is pre-blocked:
And being blocked with my blocking wires:
What a difference once it's pinned out! I was surprised to find that this pattern was actually very easy. The repeats within the rows are easy to memorize and the stitch patterns are not difficult. Even when it got up to 326 stitches per row.
This one took me 10 days. Which means, between these two projects, I didn't do any other knitting and now I am REALLY behind on my knit-a-longs. The 4th clue for the mystery socks just came out and I haven't even started the 3rd clue yet. And I haven't started the 4th clue for the Downton mitts and the fifth clue is coming out in two days. And no more progress on the afghan square. One more class project sample to make - a little tiny thing that hopefully will be done tonight and you'll see in the next blog post - and then I can attempt to catch up. That garage time is looking less and less likely....
Phoebe is too comfy to even offer to help me:
