What I see...

I've just created a project that photographically records what I see on my way to and from work. There are certain things that make me say, "I love it that I get to see this every day!" Old barns and two-laned tree-lined roads are high up on that list.

If you'd like to see my project, I have it on my Live Journal. Follow the link, or I have a button on my sidebar.

I think that I may have been incredibly delusional to think that I'd actually be able to get the Cozy shawl done in time for my sister's June 3rd wedding. Why do I think this? Because I still have her embroidered pillowcases to finish and I'm only halfway through one. And I also want to throw in some cute knitted dishtowels. Plus, I also have socks to finish in time for Mother's Day and Mom's June 5th birthday.

So as much as I adore the thought of being able to wear a handknit shawl at my sister's wedding, I just don't think it's going to happen. After all, it's her big day and I want to actually give her their gifts on that day and not ship them back three weeks after the bouquets have withered.

Speaking of socks..

Up top is the sock that I'll be giving to Mom for her birthday. I've finished the first one (see in the picture) and have started on the second sock. No second sock syndrome for me!

Boy, do I like that sock yarn. :) I also enjoyed your drive to work. I keep meaning to post some pictures of my hometown. But I tend to forget my camera.

I really love your project about what you see when you drive to work - Scotland Yards and Tots Landing is such a scream :)
The sock you're knitting for your Mom looks great already, what a beautiful yarn - I'm sure she's going to enjoy them a lot!
