Weddings, a mystery and tassels
The world's busiest summer continues apace.
My brother got married last weekend! I'm very very happy for him. His bride is a wonderful woman, and they make a wonderful couple.
I know this is not technically a great picture, but I love the joy in it.
Then, after the wedding, my parents took Widget for a week of vacation... for both them AND us. Since it's restaurant week in Boston, Wiley and I took full advantage of our temporary childless-ness and went out to dinner a LOT. She's home now, but it was a great trip for her, and break for us.
I'm knitting, and trying to spend less home time on the computer. Since work's been busy, I can't slack and play while I'm there.
The Mystery Stole is kicking my butt, and I very much doubt I'll have it finished in time for Pru's wedding in September.
Not blocked or pinned out, just stretched a wee bit. Length wise, this is supposed to be about a third of the stole.
I'm only at the end of Clue 3, while everyone else is on Clue 6, and Clue 4 is a double length clue. Yes, I think I'm doomed. I think it's beautiful, so even if I'm lagging, I'm loving working on it.
Since that takes a great deal of concentration, I've been looking for brainless knitting projects to while away my time when I can't focus on the Stole.
So far I've nearly finished a tank top for Widget, and today I finished what might be the cutest project of my summer.
Widget's Tassel Hat. She saw a version of this knitted up at NH S&W and has been bugging me to do hers since then. It was cool enough to work on it this week, and I knocked it out in just a couple of days.
She loves it!
