As you have gathered from previous posts, this semester has been a whirlwind. Right now I am procrastinating both getting ready for class AND writing midterm comments. I’m still confused as to where all that extra time I was going to have has gone post-basketball season… Anyway, over the February long weekend, I decided to treat myself by knitting something I have been wanting to knit for awhile. It’s called the Textured Shawl Recipe. I went all out, buying the really nice yarn and some new, square needles (they are supposed to help your wrists). Despite my busy-ness this shawl only took two weeks to make. It was an easy project to knit on the basketball bus and at department and dorm meetings.
When I asked David to take a few pictures of the shawl laid out flat, the cat couldn’t help joining in to model. He’s become a regular model in our house because I can only take being photographed so many times when David is praciting using his new photography equipment. Calvin has stepped up to the challenge and I think shows a real talent for kitten-modeling. Meow-Mix here we come!
