|Find Your Fade|
You'd think with all that knitting being done, I'd be finished with the shawl by now. I'm not, although I have reached the point where I'm no longer increasing. I got off to a slow start with the shawl because I was sick and had fever-confusion. I also started binge watching Shameless on Netflix while I was sick so I kept finding myself just holding the knitting while I stared, open mouthed at the screen. Have you seen Shameless? I didn't know anything about it when I started watching it. I'd heard it mentioned by a few bloggers and Netflix kept telling me to watch it. When I first came down with the flu, I thought it would be good background noise while I drifted in and out of consciousness.
Turns out, I LOVED Shameless! I'll admit though, as the child of an alcoholic, it was pretty emotional. It reminded me of a lot of the anger and frustrations growing up with an alcoholic parent, but it did it while making me laugh. Well, most of the time I laughed. Sometimes it was just too realistic to laugh about. But I have to say, the show did a fantastic job of poking fun of some pretty horrible behaviors & issues, while being brutally honest but in a comical way.
But this was supposed to be about knitting, not about Shameless. I'm no longer increasing. I only have three more color changes to go. If I hurry and wrap this post up, and I skip my 5:30 p.m. breakfast, maybe I can finish it tonight.
And maybe monkeys will fly and the alcoholics will put down their bottles.
Hey - a girl can dream.
By the way, I'm knitting my Find Your Fade with Hawthorne from Knit Picks. The yarn I'm using had all been in my stash but Knit Picks has put together several great yarn kits for knitting a Find Your Fade if you have trouble choosing colors on your own. You can see them here.
