February 15, 2009

I'm shipping the purple shawl to my sister-in-law today. I'll e-mail her and let her know to expect it.

Am almost done with the mohair shawl for the St. Philip's J2A auction. I thought I'd get it done on Saturday, but didn't have enough yarn with me. When I got home that night, I spent the evening unraveling (not always easy with mohair!) an abandoned shawl using the same yarn. Got about 2/3 of the ruffle knitted yesterday. I should be able to get it completely done this evening and turn it in tomorrow.

Have just started reading Phyllis Tickle's "The Great Emergence." The world's great religions seem "re-set" every 500 years of so.

Am also reading a book on writing by Pat Schneider. It was listed as recommended reading by the leader of a writing workshop I'm going to next month.

I'lll be having extra bloodwork done at my physical next month to try to pinpoint a cause or causes for my persistent weariness.

Scarf finished

I finally finished the knitting on the exchange scarf. I blocked it yesterday, but it may need to be lightly pressed before I'll be satisfied with it. Hopefully I can get it in the mail before the end of this week.

Now to really steam ahead on the mohair shawl for the fundraiser on the 21st!

Finally finished all my January bookkeeping crunches. Still have tons to do, but the pressure is off.
