Marisa and Miyon came over last night, in the revisiting of the weekly meet-up. :) It was great to see everyone again, and catch up on what's been going on. I worked on River and completed another repeat, bringing me up to eight. I'm close to the end of the first skein, but not quite. I took a break from that and started working on the beaded knot thing - I don't think that I'd use it, but I figured it didn't hurt to make it just in case. I figured that I would only get seven repeats out of the second skein, because of the knot, but it's so tiny! Since I'm not quite done with the first skein, I might be fine to finish eight more repeats - I'll have to start monitoring my progress with the scale. beaded knot It's about 2" x 5." Obviously I haven't put in the elastic yet - I'm not even sure if I have any around that will work. I originally started trying to put on the beads as needed with a crochet hook, but it turns out that in the Rowan instructions, their idea of "bead 1" wasn't what I was expecting, so I just gave up and strung beads. Marisa strung her beads too. :)

    I’m confused about the bead thing? Is it a “closure” for the river shawl?
    Anyway, just got your gifties off today, not monday like I was hoping… keep your eyes on the mailbox!
