Whew! What a week it has been. Busy times at work (but happy to be employed). And, the week is not yet over. I've got a conference call at 10 this morning and my boss called late yesterday to say he volunteered me to help someone at our parent company. Oh well...we'll see what's up with that. Something to do with coordinating getting supplies (disinfecting stuff) to hospitals and medical centers around the country.
Yesterday did find me able to get some knitting done on the Canary Blanket. When I finished the last repeat before starting the border, I had Fletch hold it up.
Then I texted the picture to Colin. I wanted to be sure he was happy with the length. Fortunately he texted back that it looked good!!
The border is 16 rows of Seed Stitch (I admit not my favorite by any stretch of the imagination...but it does look good). Last night I was able to complete 5 rows and then put it down. So, my goal today is to do the final 11 rows of Seed Stitch, bind off and then weave in all the ends.
Is it ok not to block this sucker? I'm not sure where I could spread it out to dry! And I don't have sufficient blocking mats anyway. Please let me know your thoughts.
Also, no walk yesterday - too busy work-wise (again), but also it was SO windy. Mainly 25-30 mph winds with gusts up to 50 mph. Not fun walking weather. I did, however, get outside in the yard to cut some more flowers.
So nice to have these on the table when we sit down to eat.
Tomorrow would have been the Allentown Fiber Festival. Boo-Hoo.
Happy weekend everyone!
