It’s hard to believe things could get any quieter around here but they just might. Owen has had a difficult transition to his new school. The teacher has not been in since day one with no concrete return date. Behaviors are up at school and home…which is to be expected. But the aggression toward me hasn’t been seen in quite some time.

I knit the Araucania Ulmo scarf for Cameron’s teachers. I knit four but only managed to photograph one. Gracie’s chorus teacher has a scarf blocking on the bed…I guess I have to move that before I go to sleep. And my mom gave me a Wollemeise gift today. Must remember to take pictures.


Myrtle Leaf Shawl July 9, 2008

Myrtle Leaf Shawl.

I guess it has been a while. I did attempt a post but the computer froze up. I have started the Myrtle Leaf Shawl from Victorian Lace today. I am using Misti Alpaca Lace from the stash. I have been desperately wanting a black shawl so this is try #2. The Baltic Sea Stole wasn’t looking all that nice in black. I do think the Myrtle Leaf Shawl looks lovely in black. However, I am not sure I care for knitted lace as well as lace knitting. Those unknit yarnovers look so unfinished. As I progress in the shawl…the look is growing on me. I am now on the 5th repeat of 40. I have considered scrapping it and going for the Large Rectangle with Center Diamond pattern but it looks dull.
