I've ripped out the green pi shawl, oh I don't know, over four times. I should know to not make executive knitting decisions past eight at night, it's not my ideal thinking time. I haven't been thrilled with the second lace pattern for quite some time. I even wrote when I finished row one or row three and still I've found a mistake and where there isn't a mistake, I didn't even like that pattern! Before dinner last night, I was on the mad hunt for another pi shawl that would be to my liking. Lucky for me Elizabeth Zimmermann had one of her "pithy" directions in her Knitter's Almanac book.
This morning I am fresh, renewed and restored, ready to tackle the beginnings again. Ready to knit a pi shawl that will require minimal effort on my part besides the counting of stitches. Wish me luck!
I've tidied my crate shelves, that we found in a barn in Ohio when we lived there around 1987. I love them so. Notice the gaming guides on the top far left (not mine) and the piano books on the bottom left two crates (not mine). Just think of all the knitting books that could be shelved once the "not mine" books leave. A knitter can dream.
