After pulling late hours every night last week, Miss Anice finally slipped off her needles at approximately 11 p.m. Friday evening. I was so giddy, I was telling our dog and cats what a momentous occasion it was (needless to say, they were not impressed). Today the shawl should have arrived safely into the hands of Rene Dickey, sweater finisher extraordinaire...my treat to myself...to let her catch the four dropped stitches and block it professionally. Soon as it's back, I'll post a good photo of it.
Monday I started a shop sample...the Nancy Shawl from Schaefer Yarns.
Using one skein of their gorgeous yarn (Nancy, mais oui), it is, compared to knitting Anice, like taking a speed boat vs. rowing. Here's a photo of what I have started...using the color named Indira Ghandi...this is yummy stuff.
What's after that? Well...I have at least three or four lace patterns I'm slurping over...but am behind on knitting shop samples for now, so it may be mid winter before I find lace time again. I'd love to hear what you're all knitting, all you lace knitters out there...and many thanks again to all of you who helped me in so many ways. We're a team! ---Martie
