My current work in progress:

1. Strandwanderer, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Wollmeise Merino "Pure" in the "Zenzi" colorway on a 3.25 mm (U.S. size 3) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

December

I am at a loss to explain how it got to be December. It seems like it was just June — where did those five months go?

For no reason except that it amused me, here is a photo of the sky at about 8:00 this morning.

Yesterday it was grey and miserable. It’s pretty darn chilly today, but nice and bright.

As much as I like rain, it does make it difficult to get good blog photos. Here is a natural light photo of my lace project (as opposed to the flash pic I posted yesterday):

That may show the emerging pattern a bit more. Still, it is nigh on impossible to get a good photo of lace in porgress, given that it is unblocked and smooshed up on a needle. You’ll just have to use your imagination.

Because this is a smaller project — a shawlette — I’m hoping to have it done by the weekend so that you don’t have long to wait to see what it really looks like.
