I'm still surprised by how quickly the Acadian Shawl is moving along.... Yes, I've been spending more time on it and there's the whole fatter-yarn-fatter-needles thing.... but mostly, I think the diamonds make the progress easier to see so it's a lot more fun to knit. ;-)
I am challenged by lace.... even the tiny bit that's in this shawl. I have had one ripping-out episode since my last post and there are a few mistakes that I decided to leave in place. I think I know what I did wrong, but it's amazing how even the simplest lace can still trip me up. ;-/
I am into the last ball and have just begun the return portion of the shawl.
In other news, we've seen a lot of Chinook Helicopters overhead this week rescuing people and transferring supplies and here's a video from a few days ago showing the areas closest to our location.
Personally, we are on the recovery side of the floods. We are down to one area of standing water and most of the mud has moved beyond the suck-the-boot-right-of-your-foot stage. :-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
