My current work in progress:

1. Drachenfels, designed by Melanie Berg, knit from Madelintosh Pashmina in the Black Walnut, Seasalt, and Mineral colorways on a 4 mm (U.S. size 6) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Highlighter Tape

How ’bout that?

A bunch of you indicated in the comments that you didn’t know about highlighter tape. And here I thought I was the last person on earth who was in the dark about the glory that is highlighter tape.

I got a few emails asking where to buy it. Well, as I mentioned in my last post, Karen at Needlework Unlimited gave me mine, so if you are in or near Minneapolis, hie thee over there asap. Everyone else? Google it. icon wink Highlighter Tape

You can indeed lift and reposition this tape multiple times and it retains its stickiness. In the comments, Colleen shared an excellent tip to aid in placement:

I found it very hard to pry up the ends, quickly, so I learned to put a fold (hem) on each end, so that I can just grab the flap and unstick it to move it up.

So brilliant, and yet so simple!

So, the lace knitting continues.

The answer to the many many questions I have been getting is: No, I am not writing a lace book. See, I can’t work full-time, promote my sock book part-time, and write a new book all at the same time. Just thinking about it makes me wanna take a nap.
