For this edition of FO Friday, I have two things that were completed to share with you. I’ll share the crochet one first. My August Augusta Shawl, in Manos del Uruguay Serena, is finished and that means I have successfully completed Camp Loopy 2013! I am quite impressed with myself that I did it. I love the idea of KALs and I love to join whatever popular knitting thing is going on, but I rarely follow through. I get distracted easily, life happens and all the rest. The Augusta Shawl is perfect for newer crocheters (you do the same stitch until the skein runs out, switch colors, repeat) and was the exact sort of project I needed for working on something while watching TV. And now that it is done, I’m sad. I feel like all my projects are fiddly and require attention. I’m on the lookout for some sort of appropriate replacement (yes, even with my pile of active WIPs).
The other big accomplishment this week is that school has started and the Lorax is now a Kindergartener!! You could knock me over with a length of laceweight yarn because even though I have been looking forward to this day for a long time, I can’t believe it is for real. It’s really happening, we put her on the bus and away she went. While waiting for the bus we were taking some silly pictures, including this one to show how strong we are. Awesome. She got on the bus without much fuss and when she came home she bounded off the bus, all smiles. Phew!
Have a great weekend!
