The 2nd Tie in the Christmas Tree Skirt

I finished knitting the 2nd tie a few days ago, but I didn't have a chance to block it and take pictures of it till last night.




It's a little difficult to see, since I took these pictures in our basement. I'll have better pictures by next week when I bring it upstairs after seaming it together with my 1st tie.


In addition to knitting this tie, I have been trying to knit at least 2 rows on my AWHF Beaded Shawl every day. After completing the 2 rows this morning, I decided to count how many beads I had left to weave on. 168. It might seem like a lot, but that means I only have 36 more rows to knit! I'd do a dance around the house, except that every row takes me approximately 30 minutes to knit. 18 more hours till completion. I'm not sure whether to dance or cry.
