I purchased 8 balls of white Baby Ull and a set of 4mm dpns today. I did a wee swatch in the LYS to see if 4mm needles were what I wanted.
Small hiccup. I was thinking that doing a garter lace pattern from the centre out was a bit crazy and actually opened up the Best of Knitters Shawls and Scarves and contemplated making the Stonington Shawl. But I think I’ll go with the original idea. It wasn’t based on a careful analysis of all the possible options but it is a pretty shawl that I have contemplated knitting before. And i like that there are eyelets in the central square. And I don’t mind purling.
So I should probably devote more time to knitting and less to reading/writing blogs/e-mail.
I’m almost done the heel on the first sock. But maybe it should go on hold for a bit, too.
If anyone wants to take bets on whether I will finish this, let me know what your vote is in the comments and I’ll do a draw amongst those who were right (there are only 2 choices; I considered a sweepstakes on when but then I’d know who had bet on what date and that wouldn’t be fair) and send off some sort of prize (to be determined).
