This week is all about show prep. I'm running in several different directions, but here's a smattering of what's going on.
~ Thanks to Karie Westermann I stumbled across this interesting article on Hønsestrick. The article discusses several different aspects of this knitting technique. What really struck me was that Hønsestrick challenged norms and made a political statement. Knitting as a force for change . . . food for thought in these turbulent times.
~ I'm in the midst of a long picot bind off.
I say in the midst because I've only been able to work on it in spurts. I bind off for a while, realize I haven't made all that much progress, put it down, repeat. Don't get me wrong. I love the end result, but it's slow going. No matter how tedious the task, I'm determined to finish today.
~ Speaking of finished, I thought I was done with my dyeing for this weekend. I realized this morning I have to dye another pot of yarn. Just one more . . .
