I frogged it...(collective gasp of breath here...)

only because I saw an error when I looked at the picture...oh, and I thought some of my ssks looked a little sloppy.  So, I frogged...and restarted the bunnybarf yarn shawl, (collective exhale of relief here...).  I have to admit, when I looked at the pictures, especially the closeups, it started to grow on me.  And yesterday, lovely day that it was, I spent some time working on it outside, and it really grew on me.  In the end, it may become a gift to someone since I don't think there is thing one in my wardrobe that will go with it, but I'm happily committed to the (newly named!) Springtime Brandywine Shawl (no more bunnybarf!).  Thanks for setting me straight on the beauty of pastels.

I've decided to designate Wednesdays as "WIP Day".  Right now, I have four projects I'm struggling to complete:

The Ten-Stitch Blanket

The Christmas Tree Skirt (which I'm committed to only doing one wedge per month)

The Jiffy Scarf which goes with the cool triangle hat I knocked off a week or so back
and a Thick & Quick scarf that goes with another hat I recently made.  I'm only about four rows into it so haven't bothered with taking a picture yet.  Truth be told, I'm sick of all the wintery hats and scarves, and since I won't be using them (hopefully!) again till next year, my motivation is seriously flagging.  However, I am hereby pledging that these projects will get my full attention every Wednesday, and I'll report back on my progress.  Feel free to hold my colorfully-toenailed feet to the fire on this.

Yes, look at that!!!  It was so balmy yesterday, I was able to set bare feet onto the porch for the first time in 2010!  Sandal season cannot be far away!  It was a beautiful barefoot day to sit on the porch and knit.  Wilbur thought it was a good day for porchsitting, too.  Happy weekend, all!!!


  1. Laurie,
    I love this. Had forgotten all about frogging. This is so motivating to me.

  2. Love the shawl! Good idea to designate one day per week to UFO day. Think I'll do that. It's the only way it will get done.
