Binding off....interminably.....

I'm in the process of binding off the Hemlock Ring blanket.

It's taking forever, I'm about 2/3 done, and like everyone else says, it takes a lot of yarn.

Want proof?

This is closer to the true color, but really blurry, but proof that the needles were still in until tonight.
When I am done with this I am casting on a clapotis that I hope to have done in time for Rhinebeck.

That's right, Heather and I are going again! Besides wanting something to keep me warm (show off) at Rhinebeck and the need to knit at least some of the yarn I bought last year before going again, I was inspired by the scarves the Spanish and Parisian women wore, as the designer says she was in the pattern notes on knitty. I also do not have the time to knit a sweater. I know me, and even though I knit pretty fast, it's not that fast.

I'm using this yarn:
Happy Knitting!

Update since I wrote the post originally.

It's done (well, off the needles!)Yay, I have a blob!

It should become a blocked blanket (bingo???) this weekend....

Until then, Happy Knitting!

I'm back...

from my wedding and honeymoon!!

I wore the wedding shawl to great acclaim and people loved the chuppah.....It is always nice when people appreciate your handknits.

I am taking it as a compliment that someone at the wedding thought I machine knit the chuppah.

I can't find the one picture I know I saw that someone took but I will find it and post it here.

Honeymoon stories to follow in another post.

For now, happy knitting!
