Those are the instructions for the shawl/baby blanket I'm making: "knit until tired." I love Elizabeth Zimmerman's dry sense of humor. She's so right--I'm knitting and knitting and knitting, and the end is nowhere in sight. So I'm dropping the blanket for a while and going back to the Estonian lace scarf. At least I can see the progress on that. Also, now that the weather has cooled off a little, that alpaca laceweight yarn isn't sticking to my hands as it was when the heat index was 103 degrees. Anyway, back to EZ: if you don't already have "The Knitter's Almanac" or any of her other books, I highly recommend them. She had an amazing mind and incredible skills, and she was generous with her tips and tricks on making knitting more enjoyable. You'll learn more from her books than from an entire shelf of other authors' writings--not that I'm denigrating other authors, but EZ is definitely the cream of the crop.
We had a good rain storm yesterday and it has cooled off this weekend...but of course it won't last...sigh...oh well. Better then having it hot all weekend too. Rich hurt his arm too, so we were trying to get groceries on the bus etc yesterday in the heavy rain! Fun, fun!
