The Diamond Fantasy Shawl won’t be coming out to Guild tonight because it still hasn’t been blocked. Why? Oh, just because. I could blame it on the intended blocking surface (guest bed) being occupied this past weekend, but that just isn’t it.
A while back I was reknitting my Cosmos Flower Pillow in cotton, intended for one of the many babies that have been popping up to friends and relatives. I gave up about half way through because I had to use a tight gauge to prevent stuffing from coming out and I was using up some more stash cotton that was pretty skinny already. My fingers felt like they were being abused. Time away seems to have helped, because I picked up the thing again on Friday & now it’s all done. The bonus was that because I wasn’t felting this one I could stuff it as I went and avoid sewing altogether. Yay! So here is pillow with the new “daughter of pillow” as Ron calls it.
