Thunderstorms and power outages are not very conducive to blogging are they? Yesterday a series of storms swept through our area. Lightening, thunder and rain appeared off and on all day. In the late afternoon/evening though we got a doozy that took out our power for quite a while. Just as I was about to sit down at the pc and start writing, everything went down. But I'm here today and writing quickly before the afternoon storms are scheduled to blow through again.
In my baking excitement on Tuesday, I forgot to mention the prayer shawl progress. I did not get it finished over the holiday, but it wasn't for lack of trying. I knit on that sucker until my elbow started hurting and had to quit. My wrists had already been aching from it, but the elbow pain was the deal breaker. I have about four more inches to knit and the fringe to add. It should go fairly quick once I start on it again. I have a new deadline and that's Monday. My Mom will be coming to town then and can pick it up for me so I don't have to deal with mailing it.
I tried to get some new pictures of it, but I'm having a heck of a time photographing this shawl in a way that shows it off. I'll keep playing around with it until I get something acceptable to put up here and on Ravelry. This was the best of the last lot of pics and it's not much to write home about:
I need some photography for knitters classes. Do they even have those?
