Knitting Project Tour and Some News
I decided to pull out the "big" camera and take some progress photos to update my Ravelry project page, then I thought I'd share them here as well. I confess, I'm looking forward to finishing some projects so that I can start some projects. My maximum amount of works in progress is FIVE. Do you have a maximum? I'd love to know!
The purple scarf is for my husband and when I initially started the project I was not thrilled with how much attention it needed. What I thought would be a tv talking project ended up with a pay attention project. Now that I've made lots and lots of progress, I can work on the scarf while watching tv. My game that I play is to place a stitch marker right were I start each day so I can see my progress. Scarves tend to be never ending in my mind so when I finish for the day and see 2-3 inches, I'm quite happy!
Next up is this lovely lacy shawl that is pure pleasure to hold in my hands. The pattern is for fingering weight yarn and I'm using lace weight, so I added one more repeat and went down two needles sizes. Once it's blocked the lace will shine through!!
The Pincha Shawl is one of my favorite knits on the needles. I just love the way the variegated yarn shines through with this short row shaping shawlette. I am nearly finished.
In other news that is exciting, is that our son is switching schools. He is currently up in Boston for a pure math PhD. He spent the fall applying to biostatistic and statistic PhD programs, planning to leave his current school with a Masters instead of a PhD. After a busy spring visiting four schools he has made his choice.
He chose Penn State University and will be less than two hours away from us! He is excited for this new opportunity and we are thrilled to have him close by. In a few weeks, he's coming home for a second spring break and hopefully will secure an apartment. Fingers crossed.
So like last summer, this summer will be helping him relocate and settle into his new place. I am a pro at packing up an apartment :)
