Lucky Day Diary March 14, 2011

Mandala Shawl from GoddessKnits
Today is Pi day so it has to be very lucky!! I posted earlier with pictures of knitted shawls following the principle of Elizabeth's Zimmerman's Pi shawl - gotta do one. Here is another shawl from Goddess Knits that follows the same principle. There is also  Mandala 2. Lucky to have so many examples of Pi shawls.

1. Today I had to take a few pictures for Robyn Hunter, as she is going to do a guest post about Infiknit. At first I thought that this was not going to happen as I was missing a small attachment to my camera to affix it to the  tripod; but a frantic search of the house produced the attachment in the last spot to look - the knitting basket - go figure! Very lucky to have found it!

2. I also took some pictures of my Pisces shawl for Pi Day.  It's almost finished! I hope that you can see the fish in the panel shot. I also used the lovely "Crest of the Wave" stitch for the main part of the shawl. Lucky to have had the time to work on it.

3. Today was sunny and almost warm by March standards. Fortunately, Spring is coming.

4. Got a lucky offer to be in the "Made in Canada" column in an upcoming issue of Vogue Knitting. Just waiting for more info!

5. Fortunately the 18-year-old is on Spring break, so mornings are peaceful - no constant hasseling to get him out of the house on time. I know that there will be a time when I will miss not having him here to hassel; but for the moment I am enjoying the peace.

Hope you had a great Pi day too.  Tomorrow it's the Ides......
