I had the startling realization that in about three weeks that summer will be over for me, and the new year will start along with all the crazy that generally characterizes the new semester.
I have no idea where the time went, but I might have cried a little when I had that realization.
Knitting remains pretty constant. I am on a lace jag at the moment. Latest creation is the Swallowtail shawl. I knit it exactly to the pattern (no extra rows) in Zephry lace (silk/merino blend)- the color is Pearl (a silver-grey, which looks white but if you hold it to white it clearly isn't). I used one skein of 560 yards and used most of the skein despite the fact that the pattern called for 440 yards.
As you see, it blocked out enormous despite the fact that I did not add to the pattern. It is more like a full-sized shawl then a small shawl (as the pattern says it is.)
Okay, so I want to knit more lace but I have to finish a gift for a friend's kid. So working on that. Have other WIPS too that I should finish. But I want to knit more lace... hmmmm what should I make? Suggestions?
