Starfish shawl continues to grow nicely on the needles. Now that the stitch pattern is set, it's becoming quite a mindless project, except for each row takes forever. There is a decrease at the end of each pattern repeat, and there are five repeats per row. I lose five stitches every row, then again, I started from 730 stitches. I think I will be knitting this for the next 10 years.
And then life takes a sharp turn. Last weekend Bill and Henry went to CARE adoption center, where we first saw Rascal, and they met a delightful little dog. She's all black, very small, about four months old. Tuesday night her foster mom took her to our house. We, all the humans and Rascal, all officially met her, and the rest, as they say, is history.
She will be in our house in a few hours. She name will be Emma.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog and leave me a comment!
