The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success. – Bruce Feirstein
The knitting continues, despite not making my “goal” yesterday. I wanted to be done with the body and ready to pick up stitches this morning however, I did get to the ribbing. Twenty-one rows to binding off, seems like a manageable number, doesn’t it?
Today I would like to sit under the pergola but the rain will keep me (and Sherman) in the house. I do have Pat Conroy’s South of Broad to keep me company. And, perhaps indoor knitting will offer fewer distractions than the pergola.
I do have a Brown Wren update! My persistent little wren won over a mate! She finished feathering the nest and now I think there are eggs in the nest! Mr. Wren’s songs are even more ebullient, if that is at all possible!
Also…I saw my first hummingbird on Wednesday! Yep, there she was sitting on the “deer-proof” netting on the garden. And, speaking of the garden…baby tomatoes are popping up all over and it looks like we will have a bumper crop this year!
Now, how about a few links?
First up we have all manner of shawl-y things!! Starting with Avian Melody which is just gorgeous!
To satisfy your inner super hero, you just might need a Wonder Woman Wrap (or perhaps we all do!!)
Sari, not Sari… too cute. And what is not to love about anything knit with Hedgehog yarns?
Rift is simple and so beautiful.
Aurora Borealis from Svetlana… oh.my.
In the somethings other than shawls category, first up Flexi… “MAXIMUM FREEDOM! Your yarn. Your gauge. Your size.” Yes, really.
Old Shale Cardigan for ladies is very cute!
And, finally – put a mitt on it with Wood Sorrel
That’s it for me this week, I am off to work on success and avoiding insanity! See you back here on Monday with a finished sweater! (Hopefully!!)
