I had a lovely weekend that began at Knit Knacks with the Arvada Knitters. I wish I had brought my camera since most of the group was there, but alas I forgot. My friend Mariah (see bowling post for picture) was able to join us. She is making the prettiest sweater vest from Knitty in lovely autumn colors. I may have to make one for myself. I also got to chit chat a bit with Janine who will be my roomie for the Stitch and Beach cruise! I can't wait for that vacation, it is going to be so much fun! But boy is packing going to be a challenge, what yarn to take?
On Friday Linda came over with the kids to play and visit. She kindly modeled the jawbreaker which is now hers. I think it looks divine on her and the colors suit her well. She is great to knit for!
The beaded shawl is coming along nicely. I just finished the second set of beaded rows. I can't even imagine how long the last row of beads will take. Any guesses? Right now a bead row is about 30-35 min depending how involved I am with the tv program I am watching. Give it a guess and I will give a small prize to the winner. If it is any help I believe there are around 300 stitches at the end. Good luck!
*Edited to add: The last row in the 2nd set of beaded rows was 221 stitches, the last row of the third and final set is 329 stitches.
