Taken outside my parent's house during an evening walk with MissMonkeyToes.
I've been busy knitting away on the second Twiggy purse. I've been down at my parent's house for a few days. I had another trip to the dentist due to a toothache. Luckily I didn't need a root canal. Apparently I've been grinding my teeth when I sleep, an putting maor pressure on on of my molars. A little grinding down of my tooth and a nightguard later, and all is well.
What's this? Could it be my very first lace project ever? Why, it is! The yarn is the merino/silk handpainted I got from my laceswapr partner, and the pattern is Sarcelle
. I'm loving working on this, but due to the squirmyness, yet neediness of MMT, I'm not able to do much more than a row or two at a time. I'm working on a size smaller needle than called. Getting to the LYS is a difficult thing for me to do, and when I went I grabbed the wrong size, so there it is. It's probably denser than it should be, but I like the way it's looking. I may throw in another set of repeats in the increase section to make it a bit wider, but otherwise I'm forseeing sticking to the pattern. (Sorry about the poor picture quality, MMT was asleep on one arm, so I was taking the picture with one hand.)
So, I've been thinking about the list of five. Lets take a look at where things stand right now:
1. socks - Aran braid socks for my mother
2. lace - Sarcelle
3. a sweater - Tubey
4. a gift project, or something else that's small, quick, or not for me or MathMan - Twiggy #2, Knucks
5. a simple, portable project, like a washcloth - River Rapids Sock
6. one afghan
