Miles to go

Miles to go 1
The shawl is lovely, dark and deep / But I have promises to keep

Miles to go 2
And miles to go before I sleep / And miles to go before I sleep.

I'm "almost done" with the Pacific Northwest shawl! It's coming off the needles, slowly. As you can see, I have two shells of the border done; they get added to the stitches on the circular needle as I work across the shells. There are 12 more to go till the center point shell, then 14 on the other side... ("this will take forever!" I keep thinking). It needs to be done by Monday, as the recipient arrives then!

I might get very little schoolwork done this weekend. Blah. But this shawl will be done. "I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep."

I can't wait to see the finished shawl.

And now I have snippets of Robert Frost running through my brain.
