I'm so sorry that I have no pictures. I really do feel badly. I mean, what's the point of one of these things if you've got no pictures?! But I am going to keep writing anyways because that's the kind of person I am...
In other news, I've finished knitting the second ball (of three) of main colour for Jody's Ohm scarf. That means I'm actually a little bit more than half-way done, but it should go quickly from this point. I did most of that sunday and monday nights as the CBC was playing excellent movies. Sunday, the Pianist and monday, Monsoon Wedding. It's a good thing it's just plain stockinette and I can work without looking because the Pianist makes me cry and cry and Monsoon Wedding is just too beautiful and colourful to look away. I did miss my favourite part though, where she is getting mendhi'd. The whole screen seems to be saffron and the music is great in that scene.
I think I might scrap Mum's sweater and make her the Branching Out scarf from that yarn instead. I don't think the sweater, blouse really, is going to work well because it's so stiff from the gauge and I've been having to do all sorts of crazy things to keep the right size. I'm not sure that I can keep up the juggling act of clever little changes all the way through! Plus it is just going much more slowly than I anticipated and I lost my place in the pattern etc etc. It is a lovely top though. I should try again with the proper type of yarn, softer and finer, for sure.
Over and Out,
