You’d think that with all the airplane knitting time I had last month that I’d have made faster progress on Hanami. Throw in a weekend knitting retreat and it should be blocking right now, right? Yeah. Well. Not so much. I purposely put Hanami in the checked luggage to force myself to finish a much-delayed sock. The damn sock is still on the needles, but I have a full sudoku book. As for the knitting retreat, I made better progress on my liver degeneration than I did on Hanami.

This week I’ve been concentrating on trying to get this stole off the needles. I’m two dozen rows away from completion which means it could be finished in time for my next trip to Vancouver at the end of the month. Should be perfect timing as that’s where its intended recipient lives. Did I mention I’m giving it away? I’m waffling about it, but I think it’s the right thing to do.

    I admire your strength. I’m not sure I could give it away. It’s really such a beautiful blend of pattern and yarn.

    Wow, you’ve made a ton of progress just in the last couple of days. I can’t wait to see it all blocked out. It’s going to be stunning!

    I can’t wait to see it blocked. I feel like I’ve gotten to know Hanami so well, I may have to knit one myself!

    Well, it looks just lovely. Giving it away will be tough. (When I went on vacation recently, I read four books and didn’t knit a stitch. Who’d have thought?)
