I spent yesterday on thin ice . . .
Working on my Thin Ice Shawl, that is.
I’ve made some nice progress on this. It is a very fun knit because you keep switching up what you are doing.
You have texture sections.
You have lace sections.
And you have plain stockinette sections.
Just when you start getting bored with doing one thing, it is time to switch to something else.
As a bonus for the chart-phobic, the pattern is entirely written-out. And as a bonus for lace newbies, it is very easy. 🙂
I’m less than halfway through this. It takes two skeins of Tempted Good Grrl (fingering weight) yarn and I’m still on my first skein.
I do love how the subtle color shifts of the yarn look in this pattern.
On Friday night I did do a bit on my Trillian.
But you can hardly tell the difference since the last photo, I think.
I also did a few rows on the sleeve of my lace tunic, but I have developed an extreme aversion to this project for some reason, so I’m not going to force myself to knit on it. I may just take it out of the rotation and put it away for the foreseeable future. I may return to it someday but for now I just can’t force myself to knit it. Go figure.
Thanks to everyone who left a comment to be considered for the Barbara Walker DVD. The winner is Roberta. Roberta, I have emailed you.
The weather turned nicely cool here over the weekend so Lucy retreated to the kitty bed for a nap.
Though the way she is curled up doesn’t look terribly comfortable to me!
