WIP Weds: Knit night & The curse continues


I hosted the Knit Nite Girlz Summer Edition last Wednesday, (10 plus 2 infants). What a great group! I particularly want to thank SH for finally getting the fire started, DH for making his delicious Oatmeal Apricot Cranberry Cookies and DS for setting up and putting everything away. By the Bye our knitting smells like smoke, thank goodness it’s washable.

My smokey Butterfly’s shawl  

Trying to get this as close to the end of the ball of Marble chunky as possible.

Remember that shawl with the curse. It continues! Soaked it out in the wash, so I got a little distracted… what started as soak ended up being jean wash cycle, OH NOOOS! Rescued it from mechanical malling. Pinned it out on the kitchen table so I could keep and eye on it. Ok I’m human, so I needed to step away to the WC… one furry felon hanging from a hanging thread at the cast off, the other laying in the middle needing it like there was no tomorrow. Contemplating violin strings!
