But mostly the hurty boo-boo gave me a reason to work on some blocking and seaming this weekend. Here's the finished blocked A Touch of Whimsy Scarf requested by Aunt Sue. I think it turned out quite nice. It's done in a beautiful Malabrigo in Emerald Blue. I think she's going to enjoy the leafy look. It may just be a scarf, but I enjoyed knitting it. In fact I learned how to do an i-cord cast on and cast off for this project. I totally recommend it as a really nice quick gift for anyone. It knit up fairly quick and has that little somein'-somein' to it that makes it better than just a scarf.
I also worked at seaming up the baby sweater for the woman that I work with. The shower was way back in June and she's due any day now. Talk about your last minute inspiration for an FO! Last night I successfully seamed on the sleeves and plan on seaming up the sides tonight. She didn't show up for work today, which was a good thing since I haven't seen her since the shower and had to take back the pinned up sweater pieces that I presented to her as her gift - and it's still not done! . But then again, what if the baby came and I haven't finished the sweater?!? I know it's been awfully hot and the baby would be in no danger of freezing had they not had the sweater, but still. It's the principle of it all!
Well, that's all for now. I must go work on posting a few discussion boards and articles on our school's Blackboard. Nothing like a little work before going to bed.
