One of Lucy’s more important duties is to be photographed with visiting dignitaries. She had the opportunity to perform this duty last night.
Donna and Em took time out of their world tour to stop in to see us. We had a lovely visit and I think Lucy has decided that there is nothing nicer than a teen-aged girl. She’d like Em to come back and play with her any time she likes!
On the knitting front, I am still working on my Angel Lace Shawl.
The pattern directs you to knit 13 repeats of the main pattern before knitting the edging pattern. I seem to have plenty of yarn, so I’m on the 15th repeat right now. I think I’ll stop after 15 though — don’t want to run out on the edging.
There was question in the comments about how I’m finding the yarn. I’ve had no problems with it snapping or breaking, and in the 1.5 skeins I’ve knit through thus far, there have been no knots or problems. This is possibly the nicest-feeling cashmere I’ve ever knit.
I love the pattern — easy to knit and easy to memorize, but complex enough to keep my interest.
I ask you, what’s not to like?
