I have been diligently knitting my socks all last week. I have figured that I progress at the rate of half-sock per day if I do not get distracted by knitting or crocheting something else. And if I ignore some (OK, most of the housework) I can knit a heel or a toe too. So now I got two socks finished. Of course, they are each from a different pair. This means I still have to finish their mates to be able to wear them. I was planning to get them all done by now, but… I get distracted big time! I meant we are talking me. Hey, when I get distracted, I get distracted! “The Large Good Mood Shawl” has been lingering for a long, long time. It is pretty, and a pleasure to knit and I love Kauni, but… It got too big to carry around, the rows got too long for – “I just got 15 minutes to work on something” unless I was planning to spend at leas an hour working on it, it made no sense to pull it out. Well, it is supposed to get very cold here in Israel before the end of the week. Cold Israeli style – 46, 49 degrees. Also there has been a snow warning for Yerushalayim. Since I want my friend, a.k.a. the intended recipient to be warm, I decided to just finish the shawl.
I started on it Saturday night, after the Shabbos ended. And knit the last row yesterday. Then I decided that what the shawl needed was an applied I-Cord edging. So I started on it. It was finished about an hour ago. I estimate that the edging only took me about 10 hours at least! Thank G-d for books on tape! If it were not for them my boredom might have been terminal! Yet I love the finished look it gives to the shawl and very happy that I went with it.
Unfortunately, it is now too dark to take a picture of the finished shawl. I hope that the sun will come out for a bit tomorrow and DH will be able to take a good photo.
And now – just a coupe more rows on a “Positive Sock” and off to bed!
