Labor Day Weekend Indeed
I guess you can't really call knitting labor...well maybe a labor of love.
Productive Knitting Weekend
I did get a lot done this weekend as you'll get to see in the photos below.
I finished blocking the Promenade dans le Fôret lace project. It took a long time to block this thing out evenly. As with all lace projects, anytime you move one pin to straighten the line, you have to move dozens and dozens of pins. I love how this project turned out, but honestly, I have no idea what I'll use it for. It's a bit small to use as a shawl and it's too large to be a doily...hmmm.
I also finished the Koigu Cross Stitch Scarf (using the Noro Kureyon Sock). Another project I'm very pleased with. I got a very elegant and long scarf for a mere US$19 cost, plus quite a bit of yarn left over. I will probably use the second ball of yarn with the leftovers from the first to make a pair of socks.
Finally, I also started work on a Manos afghan that was requested by one of my nieces who just started school at my ole Alma Mater, Rutgers University.
Here are a few pictures of the Promenade dans le Fôret lace project after fully blocking.

Finally, I have finished almost one square of what will probably be a 16 or 20 square afghan made in different colors of Manos del Uruguay yarn (which I totally adore).
Just taking, editing and posting the pictures should be considered labor.
