Lucy and I are having a lazy Sunday.
This includes knitting slowly on lace.
It is growing, but slowly. I am well into the second border chart at this point, but that is deceptive, as each round gets longer — they are now very long indeed! It takes a very long time to complete a round, but I am in no rush (It is not a race. It is not a race.) so it is enjoyble.
A question in the comments — do I ever use yarn loops as stitch markers? I have, but only in an emergency, when I was somewhere without any markers when I needed one. I prefer the weight of a rubber, or metal, or beaded stitch marker. In my experience, a yarn loop is more likely to fly off a needle and disappear. Still, necessity is the mother of invention. I’ve used all sorts of makeshift stitch markers when the need arose.
I’m hoping to have the body of this shawl done by the end of the week, then I’ll spend next weekend working on the edging, which I expect will take a very large chunk of time to complete. I think when I reach the point of attaching the edging, I won’t be able to take Tina along as a commuter project, so I ought to start thinking about what my next lace project will be. Hmmmmmm . . .
