At An Intersection

I’m approaching an intersection. Tonight the last part of Dad’s blanket will be done (please merciful powers-that-be let this be true), tomorrow I want it blocked. But first, I need to decide where to dry it so it isn’t disturbed by Yarn Rascal. I’m thinking of pinning it to the ceiling, but I just don’t know if I can make it work. The other option, is closing off a room and placing it on the floor to dry. This last option may be the best way provided I buy a padlock for the door. Yarn Rascal is a master at opening doors that are closed to him. He’s a little Houdini in that way.

Once the blanket is knit I am at an intersection of what to pick up and work on next. Yes, I have socks that need knitting, a sweater for me that really needs work done on it if I am to wear it in my lifetime, and various baby sweaters in various stages of design. What I absolutely don’t need is another shawl. Yet look at what caught my eye.

Yes, the Point of Libra Shawl as seen on Ravelry. It’s garter stitch and it’s modular. Dad’s blanket was garter stitch and modular. I really don’t need to do the same thing. But look at what I found.

That’s gem stone gradient in Miss Babbs 2 ply Yummy yarn.

I think it would look nice with this.

I am going to give myself another 24 hours before I whip out the credit card.
