Short Weekend?After last week's snow-extended weekend, this "short" 2 day weekend seemed cruel! Where are the extra 2 days for knitting and relaxing?
I did make some progress on Menagerie- I have 114 rows to go (180 done). Of course, I still haven't tackled any of the ends of the giraffe.... I think I'll make some more progress on the ends once I'm done with the hippo in 2 rows. I also made some progress on Ocean- I wanted to get past the sleeve cuff since I didn't want to have to switch from the chenille to the merino on the bus... I thought that would be a little difficult. I also knit myself a hat on Thursday/Friday... it was originally for my boyfriend, but he already ordered himself a new windproof fleece hat, so I put a couple of Ocean stripes in the black, and made it for me! I didn't end up needing more yarn, and it is very nice. I wore it on Saturday, but of course forgot to take a pic. ;)
I'm back on the bus this week as the snow has mostly melted enough to manage waiting at the stop... at least I don't have to stand in the street! So hopefully I'll continue to make good progress on Ocean. I would really like to finish it in the next couple of weeks... oh! and I ordered some shell buttons for it- they came on Friday. I really like them- although I'm still debating whether plain black buttons would look better with the edging. I guess if I don't like them, I can always save them for another project!
The Latin phrase for today:
cassis tutissima virtus
"an honest person need not fear a thing (virtue is the safest helmet)"
