I knitted a lot on the wedding shawl this weekend while watching movies for my film class and while at a rockband party (I don't like to play, so I watch and keep myself occupied). I also got David's huggable hedgehog out of hibernation (it was bad, so it got put into time-out and forgotten about), and now the knitting is only about nine rows away from done! Then he'll still need felted and finished and stuffed and whatnot, but at least the endless short rows will be done. Don't get me wrong, this is a brilliant pattern that produces the cutest hedgies in the world, but working all those short rows on their backs without really knowing if you made a mistake until you're practically done, torture. I seriously need to sit in a room alone with the door closed when I'm working on them because the counting is intense, and David does not understand how not to distract me.
So...in parting, I will leave you with a picture of the wedding shawl-in-progress. It needs one more set of leaves and the border...here's hoping that a twelve row border won't be too painful.
PS...it'll look nicer when it's a) blocked and b) doesn't have two cats trying to eat it while I take a picture.
