where’s the rest of it?

Kimono Shawl
Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle
yarn: Zephry

I really thought I would have lots more done on this by the time I took this picture. I thought I would awe and amaze you all with my progress. That your jaws would go slack and your mind would boggle. I thought you would then know the true time implications of being at an away horse show for five days.

For knitters, rows are like the rings on a tree – they must certainly indicate endless minutes turning into endless hours.

I never once considered the effects of high humidity on my gauge, not to mention the torrential rain. By the third day, I had given up all hope of knitting.

that was about the time the soft sobbing began.

  1. It’s tough to knit in this weather. We’re even humid here in teh desert! You’re on a lace roll and that shawl is growing nicely. You can’t wear it now anyway so relax and enjoy making holes when you can.

  2. I don’t expect to knit at horse shows anymore, to much dust and dirt. I would knit in the evening after we would get back to the hotel.
    Don’t feel bad, now you still get to play with the yarn. :-)
