  • Ooooh I hope you have enough, I sweated on my last row, it takes forever and uses up enough yarn for three rows. I was prepared the second time. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

  • The shawl is beautiful. I can’t wait to see the finished product. By the way, what is the fate of Thing 2?

  • I live in CA, and am a member of the Monterey Aquarium. They have a couple of those leafy seadragons, and I am always drawn to them…they are definitely one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen in my life. And so totally cool.

  • keeping my fingers crossed over here!
    your trip sounded a lot of fun, and somehow very familiar, although i’ve never been there!

  • I love leafy seadragons! Our local aquarium keeps putting them on display and then hiding them, I think just to tease me.
    Kiri is glorious. Very seadragon looking, if you ask me.

  • I was six when I saw Rock City. Way better than South of the Border.

  • Hey, you were less than a mile from my house when you went whizzing through Spaghetti Junction – we can hear the traffic when the wind is right (wrong?) Glad to see you got to Strings & Strands. It’s a bit far from me, but I do manage to make it up there every now and then (more now than then)

  • Hm, that looks like maybe 35 grams of yarn, and the kidsilk haze I knit Birch out of was 50 grams a ball, and I got 20(-1 each row) 299 stitch rows out of it, so I think you’ll be fine. I’m on the optimistic side. Lonely over here. Good luck!

  • Ann, it’s gorgeous. I think you should make 5 more of them while the pattern is fresh!

  • You were in my future home! You’ll have to tell me the next time you go through Chattanooga, once I move up there of course – and Carrie (of Southern Fried Knitting) and I will show you around and take you to Genuine Purl, the fabulous LYS in La Nooga. ๐Ÿ™‚ And rock city is The best!

  • ann…. your little boys are so huggable! enjoy every waking (and sleeping) moment,…. for one day you’ll turn around to suddenly hear very strange and deep throaty voices….asking for the car keys!….

  • Sounds like you had a great trip. I love the leafy seahorse, it must be really amazing to see it move.
    I hope you have enough to finish Kiri – it’s looking beautiful. One good thing about the Birch pattern is the lack of panic about yarn at the end as the rows are getting shorter… of course you do have to cast on 300 stitches.. so swings and roundabouts!

  • Now now. You are giving those negative yarn thoughts waaaaay to much power. (but it does look like a teeny weeny bit that is left……)

  • Kiri looks beeyouteafull. Are you done yet?……. Are you done yet?….. Are you done yet?… zzzzzz, c.

  • You’ve got PLENTY of yarn left. Really.
    In my last project I was worried I’d run out of handspun unrepeatable wool and I had almost enough left over to make a whole 2nd jumper (VBG).

  • That shawl is gaw-juss! I am crazy about the yarn colors, too. When you’re on that last looong row, with your last 10 yards, just repeat to yourself as you knit , “are there yet? are we there yet? are we there yet, are we ………”

  • Everyone’s a pessimist! Sounds like a pretty fun spring break, all family vacations have their touchy moments.

  • I’m having a hard time believing you can knit for extended periods of time without queasing, not genetically possible with our genes. You must have just eaten or something. What gives? Are you driving at the same time?

  • Sounds like Kay is my neck of the woods…or I should say near where I used to live. I am now a mountain woman up in the Sierra’s! Too bad you ripped out the shawl. It s really pretty!
