It’s been a nachtmensch kind of week. A houseful of family, days off from work I really could not afford ~ and a knitting deadline pressing down on my head like a Steinway on Wile E. Coyote.
Suffice it to say that I have seen the owl hours as I knitted and beaded across rows of more than 500 stitches.
With 18 beads to spare, the knitting is done on this massive shawl for Spirit Trail Fiberworks at Maryland Sheep and Wool.
Bind-off and blocking tonight.
Guests gone, so bed is available. (Not for me, for the shawl to block and dry.)
Tick tick tick tick tick tick tick …
