Centenial

I moved my fathers argyle vest to started on Ravelry and noticed it was my hundredth project. I don't know why we get so excited about "100's". One day when I was out riding with my father and the odometers on our bikes ticked over the 100 mark I asked him why that is so exciting. He answered that 'Its a decimal number ending in two zeros". True but not helpful.
Anyway, of 100 projects, this is only my second intarsia one. Not because intarsia is hard, but because its annoying:


On a happier note, I found out what happened with my blocking wires - apparently the courier company left a note in my letter box. Really? Because I stalk that letterbox pretty hard. Anyway, they are now going to be delivedy to work. I'll definitely have them before the next shawl, scheduled for January.
I'm off to wind some handspun for socks, because I need something to knit in class tomorrow, and I don't think those 9 balls of tangled wool are the best plan for public knitting.

  1. What a relief about your blocking wires, I thought they were a goner for sure.

    I love argyle knits and I am prepared for intarsia, it's not that bad! …well maybe it is judging by the photo above.
