My Memorial Day weekend plans are to go down to Tuscaloosa, AL for my cousin's wedding. I'm leaving Thursday afternoon and have knit night tomorrow night, so I really should be packing up tonight. Of course, I haven't. Part of it is that I don't feel like packing up stuff I may need tomorrow or Thursday morning. Plus, it took me about two hours tonight to bind off on the Big Ass Shawl and steam block it. I still need to weave in the ends, however I can do that tomorrow night. And damn, apparently gauge matters when you're knitting a shawl side-to-side. Instead of being a little over 6 feet wide, the Big Ass Shawl is truly Big Ass at around 12 feet. And because it's so frakking wide, it's not as long as I would have liked it it. Bah. Good to know if I ever plan on knitting another ever again.
Next up on the needles, a first birthday present for one of my nephews. I have a little over three weeks to do two, which is very unlikely to happen, but I figure if I get one done and include a note promising the second one by my birthday, three weeks later, I'll be good to go. I also figure I can work on it while waiting for planes and on the planes this weekend while I'm listening to audiobooks…providing my sibs and in-laws don't want to talk to me too much…which probably won't be the case 🙂 Plus, I need to finish a tea cozy by ALA Annual to swap with a friend of mine. This will be my first tea cozy, and I plan on doing the Kureyon Kozy pattern from Knitty with sachet option, but using Cascade 220 Quatro #5019 (lime greens) for the bottom and I-cord and #5011 (oranges) for the false bottom and body. It should be a lot of fun, and I hope quick!
