Grab your knitting needles and come relax with me.

I am so sorry I have been neglecting the blog, no fear I HAVE been knitting. I just kinda forgot about updating the blog. Things have been stressful at Casa Birdy...car shopping and sickness.
Last week I was able to chart the entire Elder Futhark runic alphabet, so I could knit the border of the meditation rug. I am about 9 rows into the chart now. Only 21 more to go!! And then there's the cabled edging!!!!
I picked up the snowflake blanket for easy/mindless knitting at church. Kim's baby is due in June so I thought I should start working on it again.
I've also been working on the Unnamed Shawl...I pushed past the creative block, woot. I really want to get it finished but I also NEED to get this rug done. The Lilac Bloom scarf is also being worked on intermittently...lol. I really do need to grow a few more pairs of arms (or knit faster).
I improved my continental technique, so hopefully that will lead to faster knitting.
Sorry about the lack of pictures, but the knitting is rather blobby.
