WIP Friday #46

Happy Valentine’s Day! No matter what you think of the holiday I hope you have chocolate or plans to acquire chocolate later today.

I am now at the point where I have tons of ends to weave in. I’ve finished my Follow Your Arrow shawl. I just have to weave the last of the ends in and block. I know I should just grit my teeth and weave the last 5 ends in but I think I am going to let myself procrastinate for a bit. Recently I’ve been very good about weaving in ends immediately after finishing a project so I can afford to give myself a bit of slack. I am planning on getting some nice pictures after blocking. I’m not showing it now so it’ll be a big reveal when it’s all done.

I also powered through the cowl I was thinking of making on Wednesday. I still need to weave the ends in on this too. I decided I liked how the seaweed stitch looked so I ran with it. Sixty-six stitches on 5.5mm needles goes fast.

Even though the ends aren’t woven in I’ve worn this cowl around the house. I’m not sure that cowl is the proper name for this; it’s more of a soft, light, neck furnace. It weighs next to nothing but I swear it generates heat on its own. Perfect for a day like today when the rain is pounding and the wind is blowing.
