I was sitting here hoping to write something smart and clever, but I was having trouble coming up with anything. I really wanted to just settle down and ignore the blog for a while, and sit back and knit on my purpley shawl.
I paused my deliberations to take a photo of the border and right there in the middle of a row, 40 dropped stitches.
EEEP. It is a simple lace, but suddenly my morning just got a whole lot more interesting. And I really have to go now. I have a problem to fix, a few rows to go back so I can be certain I've got the lace saved properly. The holes need to be in the right place.
Sigh. I still don't have anything to say, but if you could all just think good thought for my lace, I'd be grateful.
PS:For anyone wondering where I got the savvy new bead storage, it was in the clearance aisle just after Christmas at a local drugstore. The tubes were filled with spices so they might be available at kitchen stores (though at kitchen places, with their greater cost), I hope the tubes would be made of glass. I paid only 9 dollars for each set and have to wonder if things like this might best be found at places like Winners, Walmart, a dollar store. All the looks but not the cost of a kitchen place!
