Whew. This week has been very busy. I'm working two jobs, and they're usually back to back to back, so that means not much time to write, or knit. Although I have found a few moments in between my breaks at work to begin a rather daunting project - my first lace knitting.
I have never been much in love with lace knitting. Nobody in my family would wear a shawl, and I haven't seen any that I'd want to approach just for the thrill of it. So when I saw the Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery on Knitty, I was worried that attempting it would be out of my skill range. I bought some Cascade Heritage in a lovely light blue color, and jumped in headfirst.
I frogged this darn scarf about sixteen times before realizing, quite suddenly today, that I don't know how to correctly make a yarn over. Once I'd solved the debacle, the knitting moved along quite nicely. I might even try to knit another lace scarf soon - heaven forbid! Perhaps the next scarf will be out of mmmmm..... Malabrigo. I hear the lace is always lovely.
