I work well under pressure. Really, I do. That must be why I seem to be trying to create some for myself.
I've been progressing well on the Tuscany Shawl for my sister. I am halfway through the 7th pattern repeat of 11 total. I think I might need a couple extra repetitions since I've subbed both smaller yarn and needles. Even so, it's looking good that this gift will be completed, blocked and wrapped by it's due date.
Anne by Schaefer. I'm not sure which color without checking the bottom of my yarn bag for the tag.
I started thinking that since my sister is getting some handknit lace for her very special 30th birthday, doesn't my mom deserve some lace for her equally special 60th birthday? Here's the thing...mom's birthday is 4 days before my sister's.
Ignoring the idiocy of this plan and the slim chance it has of success, help me pick a pattern! I am thinking either
a.) Knitpicks Candle Flame Scarf (the colors make this seem even better)
b.) Branching Out form the Spring 2005 issue of Knitty.
I want to make either one as a smaller scarf that would be worn maybe draped around the neck with a button down blouse.
In other news, my peach tree is blooming! After 10 years in a townhouse with a yard only big enough for the dog to "go" in, all the plants growing in my yard are just amazing.
