How are you doing?
I am entering the new year slowly and cautiously, literally. I had a bad fall on ice on Dec 23rd which left my hip quite bruised and sore for more than a week. Meanwhile we were getting snowed into our property for what would be 18 days! I was afraid to brave the conditions without proper footwear, so I mostly stayed inside. I did get a lot of knitting done, though.
Below shows where I am with my Ambershore shawl. I’m about 14 rows from finished, but I’m expecting that final bobble row to take me two or three days.
When I knit my first Ambershore Shawl I took all the deadline-type pressure off myself and just knit it whenever I could/wanted among my other knitting projects. All said and done, it took me a whole year! I even wrote a song called, “Why Does This Shawl Take So Long to Knit?”
It was my first fingering weight shawl, so THAT is precisely the ‘why’. I’ll tell you, though, when I was finished my shawl I was kicking myself for not finishing it sooner because it is SO nice to wear.
My slow entry into the New Year has me feeling like we need a couple more weeks for this knit-along, so I’m extending it until Friday January 28th when we will have our final Knit Night!
