And she’s off…

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).

  1. Count me in with the positive thinkers — I think you’ll finish it and maybe even 2 or 3 days ahead of schedule ๐Ÿ™‚

    BTW — received a little package in the mail from up north yesterday… What was inside you ask? Just about the softest most scrumptious bundles of Blue Faced Leicester in beautiful, beautiful natural colors…

    Thanks JoVE, you are a gem.
