5-2-17 - finally blocked and wow! it’s beautiful! gifted to my friend and she loves it.

4-25-17 - bound off. love the tiny i-cord edges. now to weave in the ends and block (which may not happen until the weekend, but still - the knitting is done!!)

4-20-17 - focused effort today … and I only managed 4 repeats and still have a little bit of the 3rd ball left. just SIX repeats to go!!

4-17-17 - about 3” into the 3rd ball and almost done with the 16th repeat (just 11 more to go!!)

4-12-17 - midway through the 15th repeat and almost done with the second ball. still slow going, but still really loving the way it’s turning out!

4-6-17 - five hours in the car (the passenger seat :-), I’m halfway through the 11th repeat. and the second ball is getting smaller :-)

4-5-17 - s…l…o…w… progress.

4-1-17 - completed 5 repeats (and finally seeing my first ball of yarn get a little smaller!)

3-28-17 - mid-way through the 3rd (of 27!) repeat. slow going, but I’m ok with that. love love love the yarn. the pattern is just interesting enough to be mindful, but not boring.

3-25-17 - my sweet neighbor Renie’s husband is in hospice care … what’s a knitter to do but cast on a scarf (and pray).
