Happy Monday Lovelies!! I hope everyone had a fantastic and relaxing weekend. I know I did! And to all you wonderful mamas, soon-to-be mamas, grandmamas, and single dadas - happy belated Mother's Day! I hope you were all spoiled rotten by your loved ones! I had a splendid weekend that involved two knit nights, some much needed quality family time with the Munchkin and the Mister, a quick trip to the new Target, and a whole heck of a lot of knitting time thrown in. Absolutely marvellous! I definitely needed a weekend like that before starting up another hectic work week.
And since I got so much knitting done I thought 'hey, let's take a break from the FO train here and check up on one of the WIPs that's currently on my needles as a way to start the week'. Yeah? Especially because I'm über excited about the progress I've made on it. Last night I finally broke down and weighed my ball of yarn for my Sleeping Beauty shawl (aka: the Viajante) and guess what? I've hit a huge milestone:
|Please excuse the dusty glass plate!|
Isn't that exciting?? I'm so close to finishing this, I can feel it draped around my neck already! I seriously cannot believe how fast this project is knitting up. I honestly thought it would take me forever to finish it considering how the last time I had knit a shawl of this caliber (Nuvem) it had taken me half a year to knit up. But hey, I'm not complaining!! My hope of being able to wear this beauty this spring, and not next spring, will actually be a reality! I think if I plan it right, if I manage my time properly, I think I can get this project off the needles by the end of the week! Eek!! I think my excitement alone will be enough to make this last bit knit up faster!
So with that said, before I start up my work week I think I'm going to try to sneak in a round. I hope you all have a sunny and lovely Monday!
♥ Happy Knitting! ♥
