So far I’m making good progress on the plans I had for thisweekend. The hat is finished and the shawl is blocking and tomorrow I will start with the sweater. Now I’m going to read for an hour before it’s time to get going. The Internet is down in the apartment so I figure it’s an excellent time to get some reading done.

I’m pretty happy with the shawl and I’m excited to see it when it’s blocked. Even though I’m the one knitting it, it’s always a surprise to see the project first off the needles, then during the blocking and then when it’s blocked. The difference is huge! It’s an amazing transformation and it’s not until blocked that you can truly see that the effort you’ve put in really pays off.
