WIP Wednesday: Chinook Shawl, Fey Led & NaNo 2011

Fey Led (Working Title) – Rewrites
Previous Word Count: 41,027
Current Word Count: 43,003 (Up 1,976)

NaNo 2011
Current Word Count: 1686

Progress on both worlds. Obviously I didn’t manage to get Fey Led done by Nov 1st but oh well. Bits and pieces keep bubbling up so that’s at least something to be glad of.

I only have 3 rows left before the body is done!! Then I have 4 rows of a new color and then I begin creating the points for the edging. On the one hand I’m excited to be so close to the end. On the other I’m frustrated at feeling like I have no knitting time lately. On yet a third hand, (What? I’m married, I have two sets.) it doesn’t seem like I’m even going to get to wear this anytime soon as apparently Mother Nature has missed the memo that it’s Autumn, even if it is in Texas and the temps are still pretty high. Don’t get me wrong, it’s comfortable and nice out there but it’s certainly no need for layers just yet.

Or course I haven’t even considered where I’ll block this huge beast out. I’ve no room here in the apartment so I need to find a mobile solution or something.

    Get those puzzle pieced stress matts from Home Depot/Lowes. If you don't have floor space, do you have a hallway? If you do you can temporarily attach them to the wall(those 3M temporary adhesives) and block your knitting vertically on the wall. I'd prefer this than getting on the floor. My spine is fused so the floor can be unobtainable at times.

    That's a fantastic idea! I'll have to see about doing that. I may have enough room over the couch to do that. Thank you for the suggestion.
