Well, I can finally say that I am nearly done with Color Affection:
I’m holding knit group at my house on Saturday and we’re having a blocking party. This shawl is the star of the show, so it will be done, no matter what. Wherever I am by Thursday, I’ll finish that row and call it done, so I can bind off and weave in the ends. The border isn’t quite as wide as I had wanted it to be, but oh well. I am sure it will be fine.
Funnily enough, I’ve been carrying this thing back and forth to work and it’s been sitting on my desk for more than 6 months. My co-worker, who is the surprise recipient, finally noticed it on my desk for the first time and said, “Oooooh what is THIS that you are making? I LOVE the colors!” (I knew she would, but the affirmation was good.) “That’s good,” I said quickly, and changed the subject so she didn’t have the chance to take it out of the bag before being interrupted onto something else. Phew.
If it’s dry, she’ll get it on Monday. I can’t wait.
