The Amazing Lace - Challenge 2

The next challenge is to "knit dangerously".

I submit to the judges that any location that combinds the potential disasters of:

Tools suitable for cutting, squashing and mangling. MANY types of solvents, caulks, , adhesives and other sticky and oily items. Soda cans, cardboard with pokey out bits and staples suitable for snagging unsuspecting yarn (and knitters) is, by definition, a 'dangerous' place to knit.

So here I am, keeping Biggins company while he works on the sink in my 'in the process of being remodeled' bathroom.

The yarn and finished portion of the shawl are safely ensconsed in assorted protective coverings (plastic ziploc and large, clean trash bag respectivly), my hands are clean and the tub is quite dry. Why the tub, one asks? Because in my small bathroom, it was the only unoccupied area.

PS, I now have a working sink in the bath and 33 points around the perimiter of the shawl. I was turning the second corner in the above photo and, after I finish the current point, have 50 more to go.

So many possible dangers - did the shawl feel threatened in any way?
