I realized when I was correcting this morning's photo for color accuracy that Kleio looks like a wave. I'm on the edging now! Yes, the final edging that binds off the entire shawl! When I began this project I took out two repeats from my cast on (there are directions for doing this in the pattern) because I didn't have as much yardage in my main color as Romi did. When I finished up with the main color, after the third braid, I had 12 grams left, so it worked out nicely. I have plenty of my contrast color so I'm not worried about running out mid-edging. The edging isn't difficult, but with 500+ stitches to be bound off, it's going to take some time. I'm hoping to get it finished up this weekend sometime though. The edging can be worked on in front of the TV so that shouldn't be a problem, particularly Saturday.
I probably shouldn't admit this, but on Saturday mornings, once everyone is fed and taken care of, I make a big pot of tea (every other morning it's just a mug of tea), get out a fancy tea cup and make a nest back in the bed. Once I'm properly snuggled in with my tea and knitting, I watch the SyFy channel - they play their own original movies on Saturdays, which are so wonderfully cheesy and silly. There's usually some sort of theme to each Saturday: mutant dinosaurs of destruction, mutant space invaders of destruction, giant mutant dinosaur sharks of destruction, medieval monsters of destruction, you get the idea. It's good knitting TV and its fun to watch all that destruction and bad acting.
I forgot to mention, Logan's vet appointment went well. He's healthy and growing nicely. He weighs 76.5 pounds now and since he's 15 months old, he doesn't have too much more growing to do. (He won't be full grown until he's about 2 years old.) To compare, Finn weighed 62 pounds full grown, but our first Golden, Bear, weighed 80 pounds full grown. We think Logan will be close to Bear's size, but he could be even bigger. We're all happy he's a healthy boy, and he's happy he doesn't have to go back to the vet's anytime soon (although he did get lots of doggy cookies there).
