Knitting On The Border

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
It is really hot here in Texas. The other day it was close to 100 degrees. So, my husband was surprised to find me knitting on the Flower Meadows Shawl. "Why are you working on the shawl on the hottest day of the year?" The answer is simple, "Because I want to finish it." After two days of marathon knitting I've completed the border on two edges and with a little luck I'll get the other side finished today. It's surprising how long it takes to get around the sides. I had heard this from others, but I wasn't convinced until I experienced it myself. Today is laundry day, so between loads I'll be knitting on the border.

  1. I don't know how you're doing that in Texas heat, but it looks awesome. Beautiful close up of the yarn!

  2. This is beautiful. I know you will be glad to finish it. You'll have to wear it no matter how hot it gets. I sent two preemie hats to you via John. Hope they are OK. Since I don't know how to knit in the round yet, I have to assemble mine.

  3. That is going to be so gorgeous. I'm jealous. I will have to knit myself a lace shawl someday soon. If I ever get to it!

    Thanks again for your input on TPP. I sent you an email. Need I remind you that you're the best?!
    HUGS! Can't wait to see your shawl finished. Stay cool!
