I was really hoping to have completed the last orange section this past week. I worked on it daily too. But, alas, it was not to be. I still have another 38 rows to knit before I will change to the 'beige' color for the 48 row border. There will be a total of 552 stitches on the needles by the time I am ready to bind off. Hopefully you will forgive me for showing only this for the next few weeks. I really want to complete it before I start anything else. I have no major plans this coming week, so fingers crossed, many rows will be accomplished. The nicest thing about this shawl is how compact it is. Even though it is 'big', it is not bulky. It fits nicely into my medium project bag.
As you all know, I have rheumatoid arthritis. "Arthur" is my pet name for it. Anyway, Arthur has spent the past few years messing with my hands and feet. Thankfully, I am still able to knit and crochet without issues even with my fingers not being 'straight'. However, my feet have been a problem for a couple of years. I have been able to find shoes that have wonderful memory foam insoles that have cradled my problem feet. In one of my RA groups I belong to, someone mentioned that Crocs were the most wonderful shoes she had ever worn and they made it so she could walk without pain. Several other people agreed with her.
