Well, I arrived safely in Wisconsin for the Knit-In on Thursday and spent most of Friday getting the booth ready. The yarn boxes look great if I do say so myself.
Oh, and so does the new still unnamed lace shawl. Yes, I did mange to get it blocked on Wednesday, but just barely. I am so pleased with how it blocked out! I wasn’t sure if the edging would smooth out, and was okay with it if it didn’t, but I had hoped it would. I really love it.
It’s pretty big. That is a king size bed I am blocking it on and you can see it takes up a good bit of it. I thing it was about 56″ square, IIRC.
I took this one yesterday morning in the hotel room.
This is the only way I could figure out to display it in the booth this morning. I think it’s looks pretty good, but maybe I can work out a better way later. I don’t have the pattern ready yet, but I am so pleased with it I thought why not put it out and see if it generates any interest, right?
I did get a bit of knitting done over the last few nights on my little diversion project.
I do have a small problem though. Last night when I was knitting along, my needle came off the cable half way across the row. Don’t you just hate when that happens?! I managed to get it back on another needle I had with me and then stuck the needle back on the cable. I don’t really trust it to knit with now though. Now, I am at a market where I could buy a new one you would think, but I am knitting on a 3.0mm needle, which is not a popular size and is harder to find. I will look if I get a chance today. If I don’t find one I guess I will have to order from Amazon and have it shipped to my hotel in Connecticut, where I am headed from here on Monday. I probably have at least one more 3.0 mm needle at home but I won’t be back there until the 27th. Alternate idea is find something else to cast on that I do have needles for. I’ll let you know what I decide next post. Better get to work since the market is open now. :-)
