Updates… Birch and otherwise

Filed under: General,Knitting,Teaching — by bethc @ 11:31 pm

Tonight is bitter-sweet on the Birch front. It was the night I had hoped to be blocking Birch because mom arrives tomorrow and Birch is a gift for her birthday. The birthday that we will be celebrating on the cruise that we leave for on Friday at O-dark-thirty.

But Birch is not done… not even half way. I'm almost done with the 6th repeat. Being a math teacher I wondered where that put me in terms of percent completed so I made this

Birch Graph
Each line represents three pattern repeats. The good news is I'm more than a third of the way there. Wait, is that good news? I have decided to plop Birch, needles and all into a box and wrap it. Mom can open it and then I'll get back to work. I am pleased that it's at least far enough that she will be able to see the pattern.

GA GovDespite my disappointment at not being farther, Birch is looking good and we (Birch and I, left the rest of my family at home) had a good trip 32 hour trip to Atlanta. There I saw the Governor who I suspect is not nearly this blurry in real life… but I was too far away to tell you for sure. He told us all about the wonderful things he has done for teachers in the state of Georgia.

The guy from Target who spoke at lunch seemed to be more popular, but then again, he had gift cards!

So, as I said we're about to leave on a cruise! Alaska here we come. I should have months worth of blog photos when we return so I'll "see" you all then!


  1. Have a GREAT time! By the way, will Avery be finished in time for its cruise debut? Dare I ask about Bunny’s daddy’s matching tie???

  2. […] Here on vacation I have been working only on Birch (well and a little on my tan). Yesterday I noticed that all the live stitches now fit on the circ without bunching, that’s got to mean progress. So looking back to this post I dug out the graph to see where I am. […]
