I am superbusy at the moment with work, presentations and French (my oral exam is next week and I still have TONS of vocabulary to learn …), but since it’s still WIP-Wednesday (for 8 more minutes, at last), I wanted to give you a quick update on granddad’s shawl!
I don’t know about you, but last week was really, REALLY hot here in Germany … We had over 30 degrees (unusual) and since I don’t take too well to heat … But as you can see, knitting still happened!
This was done mostly on the balcony … our lavender is blooming, as are the wildflowers we planted (gosh, that sure reads like an oxymoron …) and the sage and the petunias are, too! I love it … We have so many bees and bumble bees, it’s wonderful (we picked the sage and the lavender especially because bees like these plants. Save the bees!). I even saw a hummingbird hawkmoth last Saturday!
I am a bit worried that I might not make it in time and granddad will get his scarf too late – but last Sunday, my family was here (for the “Thanks for helping with renovating and moving!” dinner – we’re only 9 months late …) and gran said, maybe 5 repeats would be enough, because I wouldn’t want to knit the scarf too broad.
We’ll see how it goes, right? 😉
Lots of love!
