We’ve got a First Communion this weekend at our house.  Which means that I really should be deep cleaning my house.  There’s nothing like having 30 people arrive at your house to kick the spring cleaning into gear.  The problem is keeping the house clean with two little tornados running around – the concept of getting the clothes INTO the dirty clothes hamper seems to be one that we just can’t get.

Knitting however, shows progress.  You can see exactly what you’ve gotten done and (usually) it stays done.  There’s satisfaction in that.

I’ve been sneaking moments in the early morning and late evenings to work on my pasOdoble shawl.  It’s coming along beautifully.  I am supplementing the handspun with some mill spun yarns to get enough yardage – a Loopy Cake from the Loopy Ewe in yellow, Regia in the blue green, and Subui Staccato in the burgundy.  The beauty of this shawl is really in the curving ends, they circle back on themselves and are very eye catching.

However, the knitting interest in this shawl is really the short rows.  It is keeping me going through what could be a very long project.  Although, I’ve got to admit that the gradient yarn keeps it interesting as well. I can’t wait to knit the next color and see what happens next!  Too bad my house cleaning can’t wait.
