7 Small Shawls: T - 115 days and counting down.
Guess what? Celaeno is being test knitted. That's what. :) And I am soooo excited to get it out to you. I'm thinking it may be up as soon as the end of next week. Tomorrow, I'm going to try to get some pics up for you, but I'm still working feverishly trying to get a deadline finished up. I injured my wrist (no doubt on the Kong ride - bumpy!! Medusa was much smoother) this past Saturday and lost knitting time. Yesterday, it was agonizing. I took some Ibuprofen and wrapped it tight in an ace bandage. Much better. I couldn't afford to lose any more time, so I toughed it out, reasoning that, since I hadn't hurt it by knitting, I could go ahead as long as I didn't over-do too much. So I knit. And last night, I rubbed mineral ice on it before bed. And this morning it was better! I often thank my lucky stars that my body does such a good job of healing itself. :knockonwood: I can still feel it a little tiny bit now after knitting for about 7 hours today, but I think it should be fine tomorrow. Whew! I've been thinking a lot about shapes lately. Shawl shapes, of course, for the 7 Small Shawls. I don't want them to be all the same, you know? So I've decided on another (the next?) two. This is what I'm planning for the next one, at any rate. With beads, of course!
I think I have the construction pretty well worked out and I'm itching to get started in earnest on it!
And I am loving this shape right now:
I'm thinking perhaps a little entrelac would be fun. What do you think? Are you up for it?! I've never knitted entrelac, so I think it's about time to take a little adventure! :)
