Breakthrough

It's another too tired to blog kind of day, but I did make a breakthrough that I had to share.

That's my Strangling Vine scarf, all pinned down and sprayed with water. (I'm blocking with the pin and spritz method.)

All I have left to do is wait for it to dry (which may take a while) and trim snip the loose ends. I wove in the ends before I pinned it down, but I didn't cut them. I read somewhere that this was the way you should do it with lace.

I bought a fifth box of T-Pins at Hobby Lobby after work today. I wandered around for a while, and discovered that they already have some of their Christmas stuff out. That made me smile.

While at Hobby Lobby, I was tempted by a skein of my beloved Wool Ease Chunky in purple, a rare shade. Normally Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky is only available in a few neutral colors. However, I abstained, deciding I'd rather save my money for other things.

As you can see, I had to put the pins in sideways at the end because I was so close to the wall.

Suna offered to lend me her clocking wires, but as far as I've come, I decided not to start over from scratch. But next time, I want blocking wires.

OK, I'll take the blocking wires out of the car, then. I did bring them for you on Wednesday, in case you wanted them.
