Winter Knitting & Weaving

I have a cold. Bummed. It hit me like a ton of bricks a couple of days when I was out shopping - enough to send me straight to the pharmacy to ask what was recommended these days. I'm taking Mucinex, drinking lots of fluids & sucking on Vitamin C lozenges by the bagful. Thank God for naproxen. I've been pretty tired but since I'm stuck at home, I've had some quality knitting time. I thought I'd post a photo of the Tina shawl border. One of my friends, who just finished this shawl (our LYS had a KAL) said by the end of the border she was able to complete the 16-row repeat in 15 minutes. I've worked down from 40 minutes (first two repeats) to 26 minutes. I think there are close to 100 repeats to get all the way around the shawl . . . so that'll be . . . I don't wanna know.

And I finally got the warp threaded for shadow weave dish towels. Thought I'd better get these woven because the loom needs to be empty for my upcoming 8-shaft class which starts March 1. I see I have another error and/or broken thread & will sort that out tomorrow. Off to a hot bath.

I hope you are feeling better now. The shawl and the shadow weave dish towel both look very nice.

Sorry to hear you've been sick, but the shawl is gorgeous. And yay for handwoven dishtowels!! The shadow weave is a great idea, I love it.
