2 Days, 2 FOs part 1

Last weekend I finished, washed, and blocked a shawlette. It rained all week, often pouring, and I had no opportunity to get a photograph. Instead, I knit. And that means I have another FO as well.

I’ll show off last week’s FO today and tomorrow I’ll post this week’s FO.


This is the sweet anemone shawl and I knit it out of a handspun yarn I had in stash. This handspun I made from some loop! cloud, it’s a 2 ply and it’s very soft. Softly spun and softly plied. It has a bit of sparkle.

The little floral motif around the edges of this shawl were very easy to work and very easy to remember to work, and that made this a really fantastic knit for this week while I stressed about the upcoming conference.

The conference begins tomorrow evening and while I am looking forward to it, I am mostly looking forward to it being OVER. This year instead of 30 poster stands I needed 70 which meant two trips to an art supply store to purchase additional poster stands, a big order to the print shop for additional 4 feet by 5 feet poster boards, and 3 full car loads to the conference site with the associated loading up, and unloading once I got there. It also meant that one car load had to stay in my car overnight Thursday night rendering one car completely useless to us.

Once I get to the site on Sunday evening and after the registration desk is set up and ready to go, I get the great pleasure of setting up all 70 poster stands and boards which means I am likely to be a hot sweaty mess that evening. Poster session is Monday, so then I get to break them all back down and on Tuesday load them all back in my car and make the 3 trips to distribute them where they need to go. It’s going to be a very long day. For the record, this is typically a one car load job.

We have presentations scheduled straight through lunchtime on Monday and then I get to load up and head straight to a dentist appointment that I for some odd reason decided to schedule directly after the conference. Probably just to get it out of the way.

Thankfully after all that I have a day off. Which I definitely think I’ll need and deserve!

  1. The shawl is lovely! And work sounds grueling. But the conference will BE great, and it will get over with before you know it. And then you can relax at the dentist, lol
