I finally blocked the Forest Path Stole this weekend. I don’t have any gorgeous pictures yet, but you can at least see the lace. I’ve been very weakish feeling and feverish this weekend, apparently I’m fighting off a bug, but I blocked the shawl nonetheless because I just couldn’t wait to block it.
When I wear it I’ll try to get some prettier photos to finish.
Also I have a picture of Doretta on our antique table we picked up several years ago when we replaced some furniture. I love the unique shape to the top of the table and I think Doretta goes very well in her new home.
In other news the Shetland Faroese Shawl is going well. I’ve nearly completed chart E with just Chart F and G to go. Although its about 1/3 the rows left to knit as Chart G is the largest Chart by far.
The one problem with knitting lace is that pictures just don’t do it justice until its blocked out. But this yarn is a dream to knit with, although it’d probably go faster if I’d quit rubbing the shawl against my cheek. There’s just something wonderful about it that make me happy.
The dogs are happy I haven’t left the house the entire weekend, as I didn’t want to infect anyone with my fever, but very unhappy they aren’t allowed to go outside. It was terribly hot here yesterday. Today is by far better, but still quite humid and unpleasant.
I’m ready to take a nap again, about all I’ve done this weekend is rest. Which ruined my plans to get a lot done around the house. But better to take it easy and get better so I don’t have to miss work tomorrow.
