Coming Right Along ...

On Friday Susan and I put our two halves of the shawl together and look, the gauge is right, and each half is the same size. Each skein of yarn is knitting out to about 10-11" so we are going to need six skeins for the entire shawl. Small problem, however, we only bought four skeins. Next step, contact Myra at Fancy Image Yarns for some more yarn. We know we won't be able to get the same color (Susan already checked with Myra on that), but we decided to get another color close to this, and use a different stitch over the back and shoulders. A design element ... we knitters create lots of them.
Now that I have the Addi Lace needles, the knitting is coming along beautifully.

In the meantime, A.J. is resting.

Actually, he is doing very well, the sore is healing nicely, and he is thoroughly enjoying the special attention.

Tomorrow I'm off to Jury Duty. I should get a lot of knitting done.
