It’s been a bit of a quiet week around here. Up until yesterday I spent my time relaxing in the sun and generally not moving too much in the (kind of lovely, even though I’m a winter person) summer heat! I spent the day lying on a sun bed, reading book upon book upon book (I think I set a personal record. Read 3 books of 300 pages each in one day! Gahh! I love reading! I ate loads of watermelon and we used the BBQ three nights in a row, yum! Especially after the recent discovery of special BBQ marshmallows that smell and taste like caramels! They’re the best EVER, and I can consider myself an expert on all things marshmallow!
The above is the main reason there was no WIP wednesday yesterday, I haven’t really been doing much apart from reading, eating and lazing about.
No great progress on the KAL front either. Except that I must mention that after a lot of encouragement both here and on Ravelry I caved and bought my yarn. Ahhh, it’s going to be so nice! I can’t wait for it to get here and to get started. Currently my yarn is vacationing in San Fransisco somewhere, so it’ll probably be a while yet.
In my anxiety to get started I cast on another shawl though! I’m only on row 7 now, because row 7 entailed a 3 to 5 increase. It looks pretty, but my god that is a monstrosity for a newbie! I had no clue and no one puts in a lifeline after 6 rows, so it involved a lot of frogging and starting over. More on that soon!
I’m off to work on my ripple monster now as it’s been a while and I really want to (plus i can read while I’m at it, hoorah!)
