It’s Monday, and I have no FO to report.
In looking over my blog, I realized that I’ve reported at least one FO every Monday since April 12.* And today I have nothing, zilch, zero, nada.
I do have progress, though. I worked on both my current sweater projects.
He-e-e-ere’s Lucy! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist that.)
Some progress on the front.
I am really chomping at the bit to get this sweater done, because I think I’m going to love wearing it. That’s the reason I designed it — because I wanted a sweater that looks like it, but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in existing patterns.
And here is Ingeborg.
I’m finding the yarn to be rather splitty. Surprisingly so. I’ve knitted with Daletta a lot, and have never had splitting issues with it in the past. I wonder if Dale has changed the way it’s made? I need to dig out some old Daletta and compare and contrast. Perhaps part of the problem is that knitting black yarn on an ebony needle is not the smartest thing to do. So I swtiched to a bamboo needle.
On Designing mit Software
I do have some knitting design software — I’ve got Sweater Wizard, Stitch Painter, Stitch & Motif Maker, and AranPaint — full versions of all of them. The only one I really use is the Stitche & Motif Maker, for creating charts. I actually prefer to figure out designs and do the math without benefit of software.
In Spring, a Young Woman’s Fancy Lightly Turns to Thoughts of Lace
(Alfred Lord Tennyson, I apologize to you.)
And those of you sniggering behind your hands at my use of “young, ” stop it. I can see you, you know.
Why am I thinking about lace? Why am I dreaming about lace?
I went through a lace period a few years ago, when I made a pile of lace shawls and scarves.
Lately I’ve been having lacy thoughts again. What goes around comes around, I guess.
Getting ready for the new week! Happy Monday!
