This has been a fabulous weekend. I got an invite for a graduate school interview (hurrah!), got the first season of Six Feet Under from the library, and got needles for 25% off at AC Moore. It doesn't get much better than that.
I blocked my mohair scarf yesterday. I got a few extra inches in both length and width, but I finally realized that decorative scarfs are not my thing. It is also slightly scratchy, but that is what you get when you use cheap mohair yarn. It is really cute though and I got to try out blocking, which wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. Here is a pic of my blocking job:
I also worked on my mysterious present. The actual knitting is interesting; however, each piece is 15 to 20 rows, so by the time I get into knitting the piece, it is time to say good-bye. I did get a good amount of work done on it though, check it out:
Part of the reason this project finally took off was that I purchased metal size 2 needles. I generally prefer bamboo, but I felt that I was going to break the twigs every time I knited a stitch. Susan Bates is my hero.
