Beginnings and second beginnings
I was able to start over last night and got a few more rows completed this morning before heading out to work. I am looking forward to those moments after I get home when the cats have all been petted and kissed and forgiveness for leaving them has been granted, the water has been consumed, and dinner has been started... then I can knit some more before Brianna gets home.
I am in love with this project already. The pattern is lovely, simple, and elegant. The yarn is a dream to work with and the dye job is amazing (I know it's my own, but I don't know how it happened, the colors turned out so pretty and have an ethereal quality... I think it was one of those days when I just ran on intuition and hoped for the best). The beads are tiny, and will give it the look of tiny mist drops on a spider web. And it's just for me. Not the me 50 pounds from now, but the Me right now.
another shawl, too, and am looking forward to seeing it take shape. I love the beginnings of the project since it seems to go so quickly. The top of this one is primarily stockinette so I am able to work on it while watching movies with Brianna. I finished the first eyelet section and am ready to keep going. It will be for a friend and I am determined to have it completed before the end of this month.
I hope you are all having a lovely crafty day!
