I decided to go ahead and start the second sock too. Once I get to the heel on the first sock, I will put it on hold until the second sock is at that spot too.
Two more row counters. Aren't they cute? I could not believe how quickly they came. I ordered them from South Dakota on Thursday and they arrived in Arizona on Saturday. USPS really had their act together for this one.
A new shawl pattern. It was specifically written for the Scheepjes Whirl yarn. I have two skeins of this yarn in my stash. Each skein is over 1000 yards. It is 60% cotton & 40% acrylic. It has a very soft hand and a lovely drape.
Don't ask me how to pronounce the name of the shawl. I do know it is Finnish for popsicle. The only reason I decided to start a new shawl is because I am going on a trip in another week and wanted something to take with me other than socks. (More about the trip later in this post)
This gets my attention in the mornings while I am doing my prayers and meditation. I do have a question for those of you who cross stitch. When working on a pattern, do you try and do all one color or do you work in sections? For small samplers, like this one, I tend to try and work all one color at a time. For big ones, I find I do sections so as not to move my hoop often.
This was Wednesday night while we were waiting for Trivia to get started at our local bar and grill. They were very intense, but she got her homework completed while we were there.
