Pi Complete

 ​I finished binding off my Pi Shawl after work on Monday night.  I was so thrilled to have it done and the ends woven in all at once. I need to block it this week when I can pin it to the mattress and leave it to dry completely.  

So, tonight I’m up at 2:30am desperately surfing yarn sites and my pattern library for my next new project. I started my C2C throw kit I got from before Christmas, but I’m really looking to work on another garment like one of Joji Locatelli’s sweaters.  I priced out yarn and had to put on the brakes. I will need to shop my stash for the next project, which shouldn’t be too difficult.  In the meantime I have Jo’s sweater to work on. I got the second piece moved over to my new size 8 Prym needle so hopefully it will work up quicker than it was on that dreadful Susan Bates Crystal torture device. ;) 

Later today I’m planning to give a couple of my supposedly machine washable sweaters a bath. The jury is still out on one that I’m not sure what type of yarn I used and one that I’ve confirmed is hand wash only.  Might save those for another day.  I’ve been knitting for over 20 years and have never washed a wool anything except to felt it. Now I’m scared.  But there are these 2 I’m fairly confident can be washed on Gentle so I’m willing to give it a chance.
