7 Small Shawls: T - 25 days and counting down.
Our little Japanese Maple has finally decided to show her colors. And she is beautiful!
Looking out the front, there is a glow of color like a stained glass window.
I caught these pictures right after it rained.
And right before we munched a bunch of taffy from my birthday last week. Yum!
Mmmmmmm. Green. Ends need to be woven in. Blockage needs to happen. (Can you tell that it's late and my mind is wandering?)
As I was finishing up this latest Small Shawl, a thought struck me. Most people (read: my test knitters) are not insane workaholics. I seem to thrive on working until all hours of the night, and I honestly love what I do. But other people? Well, they have lives that perhaps don't involve knitting all the time time. What I'm saying here is that, while I am determined to finish up the rest of my small shawls by the end of the year, there is no way on Earth that my test knitters are going to be able to test them properly by the end of the year. And I don't want to release a pattern that isn't ready, so I'm not going to rush it. This has been going through my mind for a bit, but I thought it was probably a good idea to say something about it, eh?
Onward to the family report....
Younger kiddo: getting over flu (can't get flu shot because of egg allergy)
Older kiddo: recently came down with cold
Mr. Romi: recovering slowly from creeping crud
Kitteh: fixed, vaccinated, ears cleaned
Me: not willing to get sick at the moment
Be well! I'm off to bed. :)
