My Trillian scarf/shawlette has not gotten much attention since my carpal tunnel started acting up back in February. I find that the smaller needles irritate my wrist and hand, so I only do a few rows a day, at most. Today I managed two rows. So it’s growing very slowly, but two rows are better than none, right?
Last night after finishing my Gandalf bear, I went back and added fringe to Fezzik’s scarf, which had left me less than happy.
I’m much happier with the fringed version! It looks more polished.
Today I had a rare opportunity to knit during the day! The boy was asleep while my husband and the Wee Girl walked the Golden Gate Bridge with family visiting from Connecticut, so I stayed in the car with him and worked on my Trillian scarf.
It is so hard to photograph this color way! I think the second photo is more precise.
This evening, the kids and I, along with the visiting cousins, went out in search of the blood moon eclipse. We went up the hill to the park, but still couldn’t see the moon. We had decided to try the other side of the hill when we saw the crowd on top of the hill, facing east. Sure enough, there was a great view from up there.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t watch for too long, due to the time of day and the presence of wee ones. But it was cool to see some of the eclipse. I always miss out on this kind of thing because we can’t see the moon from our apartment and the effort with little kids is usually too much for me! Did you see it???
