When you forget to starch!
Well, simply put, nothing. I did block, I have proof, but at unpinning time I should have listened to the little voice in my head saying somethings not right here.
I finished the other doily too!
These really are lovely things, I have to block them soon as they are going into a display for the month of February at the local library.
Man, Soo just puts me to shame. I started the Forest path stole when? I don't know, like 50 million years ago. She started hers within recent history, and is almost done! Go check it out, it's stunning, and also the same yarn and colour that I used for the next item of comment.
I finally finished a shawl too, and I am desperate to show it off, it is the third and final version hopefully of a design of mine own! Not an intricate lace, quite basic lace actually, but still it was a challenge for me to think about the knitting rather than just blindly follow a pattern like I have basically all of my knitting life. No pictures today though, I want to get some good pictures first, and they all need blocking.
Designing is addictive. I have this one finished now, and another pattern on the needles now, another one all worked out, and ideas for about 10 more. One I am really stuck on though, and it's bothering me, I can't quite figure out which way is up with the bloody thing. I think I get a good idea about it then shoot it down almost immediately. It may have to wait awhile. I have way too many things that need finishing.
It's strange to blog twice in such a short period of time! Not much has happened, so I feel like I don't have much of anything to say!
