A Finished Shawl and DF Speaks

First and foremost, here is the blocking Kiri shawl:I'll try to get some better pictures on Sunday when I give the shawl to its recipient. I hope that she likes it OK.

I also just now finished the monkey socks, but due to my shyness of randomly taking a picture at school of a sock I just knit, there won't be pictures of them until Monday. They are probably my favorite socks to date. I'm very pleased with both of these projects. I think they made for a very nice Sheptember full or Lorna's goodness.

Last night I also did this:Winding yarn by hand takes a while....This is for the Donegal sweater. I've been yarn organizing for it so that I have no excuse to skip working on it. I've decided that I have to knit one row every day on it. Given that rate, I should be done in the next year sometime.

And I have a little interview that I am blatantly stealing from Errs (who stole it from others) in which I ask DF some questions about knitting:

What is your favourite thing about my knitting?
You don't bug me when you're busy knitting :oP

What is your least favourite thing about my knitting?
The little yarn bits and roving tumbleweeds that inhabit the floors

What is something I have knitted, that you recall as good?
The Poker Scarf, my favoritest scarf :oP

Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
Yeah, from what you tell me about it

Any hobbies?

Uh, what are they?

Magic: the gathering, video games, computer stuff

Do you have a stash of any kind?
Yeah. You've seen the Magic cards. DVD's, video games, etc.

Have I ever embarrassed you, knitting in public?
No, why would that embarrass me?

Do you know my favourite kind of yarn?

That soft stuff. Alpaca I think

Can you name another blog?
Is Ravelry a blog?

Do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops wherever we go?
Hasn't been an issue so far. We stopped at those two in Japan that we saw. I took pictures of yarn.

Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
Nope. (considering I rarely knit swatches much to my own peril, I wouldn't think he would know.)

Do you read my blog?

Have you ever left a comment?

Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn’t knit?
It'd be less cluttered, but not any cleaner. You keep things pretty clean.

Anything you’d like to add?
He starts singing:
