The end is in sight!

My Trillian scarf has been going pretty well. The other day I weighed the ball of yarn, and it was around 42 grams. Now, with  this pattern, you’re supposed to knit until you have 7 grams left. Well, after getting down to 40-some grams, I’ve been inspired to finish this thing up! I’ve been working a few rows a day, and weighing  it every so often, and suddenly I’m down to 22 grams! Only 15 to go – each row is a bit over a gram at the moment, with each successive row using up a bit more yarn than the previous rows, so fewer than 20 rows to go, I estimate. Yay!!!

Sleepover, Trillian

Tonighy I’m hosting my first sleepover as a mom. So far the Wee Boy is asleep, but the girls sound like they’re getting rowdier instead of quieter. Hmm. 

I managed to convince them to do one short craft with me- we made ponytail holders!

  
After making a pair apiece, they were done. So I worked on my secret project (which won’t) be finished by my birthday, sadly.  I just don’t have the time to work on it much these days. 

But I have had some time to knit away on my Trillian scarf. It’s slow, but I can see some progress.  

 I’m not sure what’s issue is, I guess yarn + needle + pattern combination (slippery yarn, slippery needles, garter stitch) this project irritates my carpal tunnel syndrome, so I can’t do much at a time.  A little progress is better than none!
