All over but the blocking

While Brian was in basketball practice #2 this afternoon (his first game is next Thursday), I finished binding off Simee Dimeh. This was an exceptionally satisfying project. It looks much more difficult than it is, thanks to slipped stitches and the genius of designer Romi Hill. Here it is, draped over a school planter:
This outdoor photo op was made possible by a welcome break in the precipitation. It "spit in the wind" off and on today, but the daylight hours were mostly dry. It's raining again now, but I got a ride in, chores are done, and the wheelbarrow is loaded with firewood so I'm fine with that.  :-D

What shall occupy my hands now? I can't cast on any of the three gift knits in my Ravelry queue until yarn arrives; sounds like a good time for me and my birthday spindle to get acquainted. I'll be spending most of tomorrow playing taxi driver, but should have some spinning time during my MIL's doctor's appointment.

That's it for now from . . .

Gorgeous knitted piece, gorgeous colors!

I think we're having your weather . . . rain all night and 41° this morning. Looks for all the world like spring out there rather than a Minnesota winter!

Michelle, that is GORGEOUS! Nice colors and such a lovely design!

So are you actually going to block it? ;-D

Michelle said...

Will do, RK!

NW Oregon weather for all, Mama Pea! ;-)

Thank-you, Susan.

No, Sara, I'm going to ship to YOU to do! Just kidding; yes, I'll get this one blocked since it is for someone else. Those two shawls still awaiting their "beauty treatment" languish because they are mine. ;-)

Thank-you kindly, Mokihana!

Yes, more colorful that I would wear, A, but the recipient chose the colors so I trust she will love it.

I hope so, Wanda!
