As I knitted through The Storm...

    Well, the worst is over, Storm wise. It seems that we here in Hyde Park dodged a bullet. I am sure that other parts of town had some severe lightning and wind, but my little part of town didn't even have a blip in our electric or cable service. It didn't even get that windy!

    My Hubs called from work, in Fishkill, about 25 miles or so to the south, and they got hit with the storm pretty badly. It was very windy, but not too many trees came down. They were very, very lucky. He told me that he'd never ever seen so many lightning bolts in the sky.

    And here I sat, in my living room, knitting away like a fiend. I'm finding it takes an ungodly amount of time to knit just one row! So I only got to do maybe three rows! But progress is progress. I haven't even bothered to take any photos, as there's really nothing to see yet! However, as soon as I reach the part where I get to unravel stitches, I will take more photos. I promise.


  1. I have done all the "cobweb" part and I have not moved on. I was muddling around how to make raglan style decreases so the shawl would fit better. The angel on my shoulder says "Follow the directions the first time JUST THIS ONCE," and the devil says "Go for it! It is your yarn and if you want to knit it, frog it and knit it correctly, you will have TWICE your money's worth!"

  2. You go girl! Let me know how it turns out, if you figure out how to adjust it. I can't wait to see the results.
