my needles?

What needles?
Every morning this week I left my bed unmade so that I could block my Color Affection Shawl....Finally because I had to report something today I got it laid out to block.(I do not know what I am doing but I'm doing something.) With a fan and our low humidity today it SHOULD dry by tonight.
Otherwise we'll be hunting a place to sleep....
Since I finished my 'man hat' last week I have not purchased any yarn for the next hat. :(  I've looked at Hobby Lobby, today I'll try Joanne's but if I strike out I'll be going to Park Avenue. (The closest yarn shop is on Park Avenue in League City so it is called Park Avenue Yarns.)
Between playing with my IPad and quilting charity quilts I haven't knitted much;

This fits in my purse and gets worked on during trumpet lessons and school pick-ups. (I have been known to park in the parking lot and wait for 45 minutes now that the weather is cooler and I have my knitting with me.) I timed one row; 15 minutes per row. I have about 4 inches done and it needs 6 inches; although this yarn is so thin I may make it wider. The pattern is here.

Judy has a linky post here with other knitters posting their work.

The shawl is gorgeous. I hope it's dry by bedtime!
I love that you park early just to knit. The scarf is coming along!

I recently blocked a scarf that I had to lay out on 2 1/2 beach towels laid end to end. Wowza, that thing was long! Your shawl is a beaut.

Love the way your shawl turned out! I wish mine were that far along. Did it get dry OK?
