Family Participation

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usWell, Audrey is blocked and the weather is 75 degrees, not quite the day for a sweater made in bulky yarn. Just wait and I am sure it will cool down again. I had it all pinned out on my bedroom floor yesterday morning and was amazed at the family comments. 13 yr S walked by and said 'thats really nice, wow I like that.' DH said 'oh you're blocking that, did you measure it?' I looked at him in wonder - how does he know to measure when you are blocking? 'I read it in the book in the bathroom.' So Janet Szabo's I Hate to Finish Sweaters is sitting in the bathroom, are you as amazed as me that he would open it and read about blocking? if I can quote Michelle 'thanks for stepping into my world for a second and talking about yarn!'

Now I am working a scarf with Rowan cotton tape, (had a little help taking this picture as you can see.) Image Hosted by and the huge needles, I hate knitting with needles that big - it just doesn't flow - but so far I like how the scarf is turning out, and yes I am going to put some of those pom pom things on it, in a aqua color, am dreaming about how I want to knit them.

Did the blocking of the sleeves help? I can't wait to see it on you tomorrow!!!! I get to knit a lot on Saturday since I'm racing Sunday and "need to take it easy". Stop by anytime.

Beautiful Audrey! Love the color and keep leaving those books in the bathroom - it's amazing what family can learn by strategically placed books - or shopping lists!

Blocking RULES - sleeves look perfect -rather than making me look like hulk shoulders. And I hadn't even thought of strategically placed shopping lists - I must remember that.
