I Really Do Knit

For the last week I have been diligently plugging away on Durrow, at home, and the Leaf Lace Shawl, at my knitting groups. Durrow is now a 14-15" tube depending on how "slightly stretched" I make it and the Leaf Lace has 8.5 repeats done. As you can see from the photo the cast on edge of Durrow looks ruffly. I must have cast on a bit too loosely? I think when I finish the body I will cut off the cast on edge and bind off. Or maybe when worn it will look fine.

I think we're on our 26th or 27th consecutive day of rain. The record is 33 days. I'm hoping to break it. Sandy always asks for pictures of the sky. What sky?

Standing on my front porch there is no sky, only a blanket of gray.

And I know I'm a little late in the game but it's Delurking Week. Come out, come out, wherever you are!
