Is there no end?

April 17, 2008

Have you ever had a never ending project. I have been working on my Montego Bay Scarf and it never seems to get done. The pattern calls for 80″, I think I am there but it is sooo hard to measure. I am just going to have faith and stop. I measured out the fringe the other night (I just didn’t feel like knitting it anymore).  Here are some pictures:

Because it is knit with a bias the cast on edge looks a little weird. I hope I can block them to look straighter. It may not matter, with the fringe and the drape it will probably not be noticeable.

I have worked some on the Laguna Blouse. I was knitting happily along and making the front match the back until I realized when I got up to the sleeve area the front has a lower neckline. So now to rip back!

The weather here in New Hampshire has finally improved. It is actually spring. I still have a few piles of snow in the yard but I have been able to get out and survey the winter damage and clean up a little around the entrance way. We have a yard service come in and do a spring clean up which saves a lot of time. They don’t cut back damaged plants or shrubs or repair garden beds, but they get the dead grass and sand off the lawn, get rid of leaves and generally make things look better until I can get out there to work. My time is limited over the next couple of weeks, but come May 1st I will be able to spend more time in the garden. I can’t wait.

I am going to a class with Lucy Neatby tomorrow and Sunday. Tomorrow is a class on design and Sunday on finishing techniques (my sister is coming with me on Sunday). I am so excited and hope to learn a lot.
