This evening, I finished Haruni which I decided to knit after seeing a lovely one on display at Rhinebeck last month. It also gave me a good excuse to use one of the skeins of yarn I hand-painted last summer - the one that was 4 shades of Sky Blue.
I was really nervous about doing the crochet bind-off but I took a deep breath and started in following the instructions and within a few stitches, I had it figured out. I was even able to fix a couple of mistakes I had made in the previous row when I missed purling a couple of the yarnovers from the row before that.
My ninth shawl is a Trinity Shawlette using some Regia Kaffe Fassett Hand-Dye Effect sock yarn. It was a UFO that I grabbed the other day as I was flying out the door to go to Scooter's provincial cross-country meet. It didn't take me long to find my place again in the pattern and I got a few repeats of the pattern done on the way there and home.
The last two cross-country meets were at the same place so knew our way around. However, we were blown away by the number of spectators that were in attendance. But I guess it makes sense that people all over the province were competing on a weekend making it easy for lots of parents and other supporters to attend.
It was a sunny, cool day and we were really glad we had worn warm coats, mittens/gloves and scarves. Here, Skip is showing off the lovely, warm (Labyrinth) scarf that I knit him last year.
