The End of Ends is in SightYesterday, after some frantic errand-running, I sat down for some serious work on Menagerie's stubble. Just about 300 ends later, I am finally done with all the little animals... except for the giraffe. Ugh. I did tackle all the white ends surrounding the giraffe last night- over 60 of them, and when I asked my boyfriend whether he thought I had started on the giraffe yet, his reply was "no". I still have my work cut out for me! But with a good deal of work tonight and tomorrow, I should be able to finish in time for my grandma to take the blanket with her this weekend when she flys to Atlanta to visit my aunt. I figure my aunt and grandma can enjoy the blanket, and deliver it in person to my cousin- I always like deliverings gifts in person- even if it's not MY person- rather than putting them in a box. And this way the blanket can be part of her baby shower- whenever they hold it!
Progress continues on the first Fire Sock... I'm almost done with the heel/ankle section, and will soon be at the foot. I guess at this point I should measure the length of my foot to check length! I just eyeballed the cuff, but I think foot-length is one of those things I should go ahead and measure.
The Latin phrase for today:
sine cortice natare
"to need no assistance (to swim without corks)"
