Simple Things is now pinned out and blocking.
First it went for a soak in unscented SOAK:
And then the rain started outside. So I was serenaded with rain dripping on the metal covering of the trash chute as I pinned it down:
Another good use for Spencer's room and old bed? Undisturbed blocking space. One of these days that poor bed is going to dressed up. Soon, really soon, I promise.
This is all that is left. It will be wound up in a neat little ball and sent along with the shawl to the recipient. She's a knitter so I figured she would know what to do with it if she needed to make a repair.
Besides, there is no more room in the hanging stash, so it has to go somewhere!
Off to Ravelry to fill in the final specifics for this project, add the last few photos, and then I start a pair of socks for knitter's husband. For those who don't have access to Ravelry, here's the highlights, size 4 vintage plastic circular needle, Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids in Wisteria, one 420yd skein, with a bit left over. I started it in January, just now finished it after not being able to knit on it for a very long time.
Wish I would have had the socks already with me on the way home today. Nothing like sitting at the station for an hour after you 'just' missed the bus with NOTHING TO DO but sit and dwell on the fact that you 'just' missed the bus and now you are sitting on a cold metal bench waiting for the next bus to finally drag its ass into the station and oh here comes some rain.
Yeah, I definitely needed some knitting.
