Anyone want to guess how many of my current six projects are lace? I will give you a hint… I love lace.
Five. Five lace projects and one crochet (gag… but it must be done…).
I have got the lace border for the baby blanket going.
This is an easy lace, but I am starting to hate the yarn. Knitting lace with cotton/linen is hard on the hands. (I know, I know, it will soften in the wash and be just scrumptious to wrap a baby in… but for now, I suffer.)
The February Fitted Sweater is still in progress.
And, while this is technically lace, it is pretty mindless. This one is a pleasure to knit as I am still swooning over this yarn. It is just lovely.
The Rona Shawl is collecting dust.
It is going to be fabulous if I can ever get up the gumption to do what it takes to get it going again. You see, I arrogantly left my lifeline 40 rows back…. and so I have to frog it back 40 rows because of not one, but two nasty mistakes. Hence the dust.
I also have the Celandine still on the needles.
It is an endless project. I do intend to finish it, though, because I cannot wait to wear it!
Lastly, the project that keeps me up at night, the one that I am passionate about, the one that haunts me in my dreams. Jaali.
Sigh. This is the reason for lace knitting.
But, all this lace means that I have no movie-watching knitting. I have no visiting with friends knitting. I have no watching the kids play knitting.
Time to cast on a diaper cover… or two.
