Last week felt a lot like treading water. I’m happy to say both kids are much better now, but there was a lot of wiping noses and soothing fevers and delaying things like showers and meals for me in efforts to keep up.
I did manage to finish two knits though. Knitting after bedtime was my sanity, and the reward doubled when I actually got to see finished results.
I finished a quick knit with this reversible cowl. I had some thick wool gifted to me, and I wanted to use it for something like this.
And I am so happy to say that I finally finished my Henslowe shawl! I somewhat started this in December, but the holidays were crazy busy, and I couldn’t get much more than a few rows done without interruption. I picked it up again in January, and I finally finished up the edging on Friday. I love this yarn so much.
I’m not sure if I will look like an old lady when I wear a shawl, but I fully intend to wear it anyhow.
Large or small, a finished project of any kind feels so good, doesn’t it?

That shawl is beautiful, and you will look like a with it young woman with that on.
Both gorgeous, but I am admittedly partial to the shawl. Seriously awesome.
Gosh, I am so jealous of your knitting talents! I don’t think you’ll look like an old lady with the shawl, it’s all in the styling!
