Have you ever actually been tempted by a pattern with a 100-stitch repeat?
This question was asked in the comments today.
The answer is, for lace, no. I don’t think I’ve seen a lace pattern with a 100-stitch repeat. Colorwork is another thing. Some of the Dale of Norway sweaters I’ve made are somewhat “pictoral” — no pattern repeats of the main design. It’s just one honking big chart. Like Lillhammer and Nagano. (You can see my FO pix of those — they are linked to from my knitting gallery page. The link for that is over in the sidebar.)
So Tina is plodding along. I am now more than halfway done with the third side, approaching the third corner. Soon . . . the home stretch!
Here is Tina, relaxing with some chocolate.
I did a teeny bit of knitting on Tina, but I spent a good part of the time performing a cable-ectomy on Kristine’s Grace. (Y’all remember Kristine’s evil sweater Grace, right?) I think the operation was a success, though the patient is still in recovery.
But now I’m home, and Lucy is happy to lie on my knitting bag.
