I have some appointments and then Tuesday morning, I will be starting my job search once again. In the mean time, we had a nice snowstorm this weekend and it made for a do nothing weekend, so I sat and knit and knit and knit. And guess what happens when you knit and knit.
Funny how that happens!
I am really pleased with how the lace is going. I switched colours at the beginning of the transition chart. Because of the construction of this piece, I could come into that chart in the middle, right at the base of the flowers. I was a little worried about how that would look, not knowing that I could skip some of that chart. This works out perfectly for colour, better than I hoped for. I like how the lace looks too. It isn't always as showy as it could be, but I think this will be fine. I hope Paulette does too. It will look lovely on her dark hair.
The faux blocking also shows how very pretty the star pattern is. A person could easily entertain a cardigan in that little pattern.
Not that I am right now. I am sticking virtuously to knitting socks and my Clapotis. The intensity 0f the lace demands a break, and Clapotis is the perfect offset project.
Anyway, that is what is happening here at Chez Needles. It might have been crappy weather, but it sure was great for knitting!
