There are a couple of mistakes, silly ones. I didn't notice that one of the markers for the corners was missing, and now one of the corners doesn't, y'know, corner! It rounds its way around the bend. The shawl is also smaller than I'd like, even though I added one entire pattern repeat to the pattern than it called for. What are you gonna do?
I do love the shawl, as one can love one's first born, and am impatiently waiting for it to dry so I can try it on.
This morning, I had a busman's holiday, making doughnuts from 6 am to noon, for GULP, for our first-ever brunch. I made three doughs, forming the sourdough doughnuts into balls and sticks. The sticks were supposed to be filled with blueberry jam, but after making the jam, and making the doughnuts, I realized I didn't have any piping tips to push the jam into said doughnuts. I dusted them in vanilla sugar and called it a day.
I didn't take my camera to brunch, thinking that one of our members likes taking the pictures best, only to find that he was sick and didn't come. I only have the doughnut photo to show you. Please have a towel ready, so as not to ruin your keyboard. They were delightful!
And now it's back to the couch to assume the knitting position. I must finish the orange silk shawl before the closing ceremonies!
