The good news is that I got all the knitting done I needed for people's presents.
The bad news is I miscalculated. You see, when I said 'I need to get this done by next weekend'. I was thinking 'I need to finish knitting this by next weekend'. Make sense, right? Just one little issue: everything also needs to be blocked. Well, since I got everything done by Thursday, I was able to start blocking it all:
But I forgot something. My mom's sweater, made out of nice warm alpaca-silk yarn that is brittle when wet? That one? Takes forever to dry. It's been sitting out there since Wednesday night and it is still wet.
I have to pack it up tomorrow morning. It may have to be in a bag in my knitting bag, the way this is going, and even that's going to be an iffy trip. Even though I'm hoping re-purposing my space heater as a blow dryer for it will dry it....naw, I'm screwed.
