My procrastination knows no bounds...

February 23rd, 2006 (11:14 am)

current mood: rushed

Quick pop in to post my procrastination photos from yesterday. (Me? Take photos rather than knit with the deadline looming? Never!) :P

This one shows clue 4 completed on the left side of the shawl (the last side to eventually be worked), while this shows what things look like after Clue 5 is worked (ie the shawl being completed and coming off the needles). Looks pretty sad doesn't it? ^^; I'm hoping it'll block well, and from what I've seen from tugging and playing, it should grow quite a bit. Today, I'm aiming to finish the bottom section of the shawl and get well and truly started going up on the left side. Hopefully I won't have to stay up until the truly wee hours Saturday night/Sunday morning to finish ^^;; More later. ^_^

Sooo pretty!!! Not pretty sad! What are you talking about??? I wish I could be that dedicated to finishing something, but I only ever finish one of my scarfs if it is for someone else. =/

*laughs* Well, it really does look so small and crumpled as it comes off the needles. ^^; I'm looking forward to seeing it blocked since that's when I'll see what it really looks like. ...I just hope I didn't make some horrendous mistake in there. ^^;

I'm glad I found out about the knitting olympics as well as the mystery shawl along (there are some other knit-alongs I'm interested in as well) since everyone's in the same boat trying to achieve/make something. With something like the mystery shawl, everyone else's progress keeps me going since I want to see the progress point too... although I haven't started MS3 yet since I'm still trying to finish my KO project. I'm in waaaay over my head... >_<;

Wow...so ambitious. LOL. It really looks awesome though! Even if the image you have in your mind shows it as nearly completed...from an outsider's perspective, it is coming along nicely. I hope you keep us updated!! ^_^

Thanks! I've finally hit the midway point but am so in over my head still. ^^;

It's looking great! And yes, blocking will open that right out, let the lace shine, and make it bigger. Lucky! I'm in blue sock boredomville. *cry*

^_^ I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern open up with blocking (and for it to get bigger). Right now, it's about as long as my laptop is wide. ^^; Good luck getting through boredomville! Just think of the nice blue socks you'll have soon! ^___^
