The weekend was kinda weird. A weekend of rain + plans that relied on sunshine + people you don't know well = well, I don't know. But it's a recipe for something.
The concert was, if I had thought about it, pretty much what I expected. But seeing as I didn't, it took me by surprise. Photos tomorrow will make it clearer. In the meantime, here's progress on That Cute Flirty Skirt:
I'm into the next patterned section now, and while I'm glad to leave the first pattern behind (my own fault for screwing up and having to frog before), this next stretch has k3togtbl and p3togtbl. "tbl" means "through the back loop" and when purling or knitting 3 stitches together this way, requires a bit of needle gymnastics. And I'm lazy. Out of shape, shall we say. Another row or so and I'll be back into some kind of rhythm. Meanwhile, picture someone who has trouble walking across carpet, doing gymnastics. Or jazzercise in a cluttered living room.
The rambouillet/silk shawl is still nameless and still progressing:
I'm almost a foot and a half in. Because of the easy pattern and being able to simply knit across every other row, it's perfect TiVo knitting.
