purly wisdom : knitting adventures : sisterly shenanigans : an occasional knit along
good grief ~ you will be done long before I even get to the lacemaybe when you wear yours to Madrona, I'll be inspired to finish mine ;)Mel (thanks for putting the needles down long enough to share your progress!!)
Looking good! I'm on a slower pace too, Mel! I'm past the halfway mark, but there's still a long way to go until I finish the square.
Oh, and my 3 year-old has now taken my needles out of my 150+ rows three times now. I'm starting to get overprotective...and mighty grateful that I didn't use the slippery Baby Alpaca!
yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at least it's the garter section :)I've pulled needles out of lace knitting before and that can be a nightmare to get back on the needles!
I know, right! I've pulled them out of lace too...That's what lifelines are for. Aptly named!
My 14 year old is begging me take her and her friend shopping! All I want to do is stay home and work on my lace! Now I have to decide if I should take it with me? If I take it with, can I find a place to knit and sit and not mess up? It takes me about 45 min. to do 1 row of lace, and about 20 min. for the knit row.~that's if you don't mess up~ loving it~Kelli
Yeah, I'd say take it with. Teenagers can shop until they drop!
Like a bridge over troubled waters...at the beginning of the lace section I knitted one row of my sparkly gold yarn, got to row 10 of the horseshoe lace and decided I did not like it, kept looking like of a lifeline I forgot to take out. So out it all came. I'm back to my square. Took some courage and swallowed pride, but I'm happy now. Back to picking up stitches A L L T H E W A Y A R O U N D again. No funny looking lifeline~ yeah!
Uh-oh. Well, at least you're still way ahead of all of us! After putting in so much work, you'll want a FO that you're completely happy with. Good luck picking up all those stitches, again!
