This may be taking me a bit of time to knit, and I don’t really feel like I am getting anywhere fast (I’m only on my 6th pattern repeat, even though I knit LOADS yesterday) but I am so enjoying knitting this shawl. I know that each row has a few more stitches and that that means each row takes slightly longer than the last, therefore I get *less* done in the same amount of time.. but I actually don’t care how fast this is growing. I get a certain amount of satisfaction at the end of each pattern repeat, and it just spurs me on to do the next.
The Manos is doing it’s usual seeming to knit for miles, and I totally love the fact that I know where I am in the pattern all the time, and I’ve even managed to fix a couple of mistakes without ripping it back. I have eschewed a lifeline (for this project) as I constantly check my progress. If I go a bit wonky I usually spot it within a few stitches and can sort it out right there and then.
Right back off to the knitting (you know I have been so caught up in this, I haven’t even watched Caprica yet).
Finally I have some time to sit and update.. (there may have been something to do with inclination in there too).
Not much news though. The flat is still in the same state, although I am hopeful that SOMETHING might be happening soon.. plus all this delay has worked to my advantage in some ways.. They might be finished ripping the guts out of the flat downstairs by the time I get cleaned up and organised and all the resultant mess from that will also have been cleaned up!
News from the land of knitting is not great.. or rather I haven’t been knitting much – especially the last couple of days of having a computer and internet access! I have a sock (the first of a pair, obvioulsy, or maybe hopefully) on the go, I haven’t picked up the Smoke Alarm cardi since before I went to cat sit for Ed & Erin, there are 2 projects hibernating at the flat and umm well that’s all the knitting news really. La la la.. I know, I should get my ass in gear. Truth is I’d rather be planning nights out and dancing.
Last episode of BSG is shown in the States tonight, plan is to get a copy toomorrow and then watch it with Ed & Erin on Sunday… if anyone spoilers me I will be forced to stick crochet hooks in them where the sun don’t shine!
From reading her blog I felt an affinity.. now with her latest post about knitting and BSG I find myself lost in further admiration.
