The extra long weekend was just what I needed! I have been knitting on this damn shawl like crazy. And, I even decided to do extra repeats on the main body of the shawl. Partly because it was looking teeny tiny, even when I fake blocked it (stretched it out), and partly because I was stupid and miscounted my repeats and ended up doing a whole extra one...and then didn't quite feel like tinking back 6 rows of lace. Call me crazy. So, as per many other Swallowtail knitters on Ravelry, I followed Minty's lead and extended 5 extra repeats. At the time, I thought I was just asking for trouble, given the time sensitivity of this project, but seeing how fast I was able to bust out the extra 5 repeats, I'm glad I did it. I am now on the second of the "nupps repeats." As per all of your comments to my last post, I am knitting them loose! Thanks for the advice everyone!
And so, I will just keep knitting along...26 days left...no pressure!
Switching gears, I recently completed 60 days of the my 365 days project. I can hardly believe it. Some days are easy, some are really challenging. Some photos are pretty good, some are- not so much. But I'm still having a lot of fun and I'm learning a lot. Here are days 31 - 60:
Happy short week, everyone (in the US)!
