Woo hoo, I actually have something to show this week! Did you know that Saturday was Worldwide Knit and Crochet in Public Day? So I went out and crocheted in public! My yarn playgroup always has an event for WWKCIPD, in fact the first time I met these lovely folks was two years ago at this event. We had a great time and got alot of nice attention from passersby. I forgot to take photos though, darn it--I was too busy FINALLY starting on my Crocus Bud scarf. Last month I showed you the shawl pattern and my swatch here. Well, thanks to crocheting in public on Saturday and a couple of long meetings at work this week, I've got it done already and it is blocking as I type!
I think I'm going to love it.
Couldn't get the whole thing in one picture, it's about 6 feet long:
Like my fancy blocking mats? Yeah, beach towels. Whatever.
I've also done six squares so far in June for Knit-a-Square. I don't think I'm ever going to finish up this purple yarn!
Other than that I have been enjoying our FABULOUS weather this week, what a welcome break from the 100-degree stuff we've had recently. Oh, and I found an almost-new gas grill for $35 at a yard sale on Saturday! Ours is all rusted out and we were looking at new ones so this was quite the score.
If you'd like to participate in WIP Wednesday on your blog, head on over to Tami's Ami's and join the fun!
