The weather here was really nice for a couple of days but now it is getting cold out again so that means it is time to hide here at home and maybe continue to make some progress on my projects during the next week. This coming week is going to be busy, so that also means that I might not have as much time to hide and work on my projects, but I will see have to wait and see how things go.
The good news is that by Sunday evening I have started to do the cast-off on the shawl so that means that I should be able to get this shawl done before the end of this coming week. I am so happy with the progress that I have been able to make on this shawl. I have been trying to move this shawl forward and this last week I ended up spending most of my free time working on getting the rows done that I needed to get done.
I have now started the cast off edge on the shawl and given that there are 517 stitches on the needle it is going to take a bit of time to get all of them off, but I will continue to work on it a bit at a time until it is done. I wanted this shawl completed by the middle of March and I should be able to get it done by the middle of February, so that is one month before I said I wanted it done so yes, I have been really working on getting the rows done when I could. Hopefully, next week I will have picture of this shawl finished and all the ends sewn in.
I hope everyone is finding that little bit of time to do something that you enjoy so that you can keep your own personal battery charged. I know for me being able to sit and work on a project even for half an hour makes me feel so much better.
