Insomnia: it’s not always a bad thing.
I’ve had a couple of sleepless nights this week, so my lace in progress is, well, progressing.
As I mentioned in my last blog post, this is another lace sweater, and it will be styled similarly to the last one I made. (I know I haven’t written up the pattern for it yet — too much going on for me to concentrate!)
This one differs from the last one in that I started by knitting a lace edging sideways, then turned and picked up stitches along the long edge and am knitting up from there. On my last lace sweater I simply knit up from the bottom.
I am planning on making this sweater rather long — I think I have 26 or 27″ so far on this piece (which will be the back) and I will likely knit to at least 32″, maybe more.
I’ll keep you posted. 🙂
The other day firefly contacted me to offer a fun giveaway for my readers. Remember the adorable knitters’ eye charts we gave away a while back? Those were a collaboration between firefly and her artist son. Her son has an etsy shop here where he sells his vintage-y handmade subway signs. Like these:
He also does custom work, if you are looking for a unique gift for someone — check out this lovely sign created as a wedding gift:
This giveaway is for a set of three 12″ x 18″ signs that the winner will be able to select from the Flying Junction Etsy shop. If you’d like to be entered in the drawing, please leave a comment to this post by noon EDT next Tuesday, August 23 — my publication day! 😀
By the way, firefly asked me to tell you that her son knows how to knit. 🙂 We gotta support our fellow knitters!
