I’ve been working on the Wing-o’-the-Moth exclusively this weekend. Two-thirds the way through the first lace pattern it was just zipping along. But of course, because the rows are getting longer, it took most of the weekend to get the last third done.
But now I’m in the second chart, the Twin Leaf pattern — there are 40 rows total of that, which of course, keep getting longer.
If you’ve been considering this pattern, I can tell you that I’m enjoying it very much so far. I’ve found no errors and the instructions are very clear and thorough. And the instructions are written out as well as charted, so if you don’t like charts, you can knit it from the written out instructions.
Still life with cat:
The Alchemy Haiku is, I think, perfect for this project.
The silk content gives it a lovely sheen, while the mohair provides a nice halo without being too fluffy. I can’t wait to finish and block this!
Anyhow, it’s time to get back to the knitting. I get to stay up late tonight and knit because I’m off from work tomorrow. As I mentioned last week, I’ll be at the Martha Washington Library in Alexandria VA tomorrow (September 18, 2006, 1:00pm) for a book event. Stop by if you can!
