In the studio
Triangle shawl [increase one stitch each row], suri [alpaca], garter stitch, size 10 aluminum cable needle, 24 in.
I got this yarn in a swap (thanks, Elly!), and it's fabulous. The skeins have around 300 yards each, and I'm going to keep going on this shawl until I use both skeins, so it will be rather large. It's light weight, however - still no more than several ounces.
I finished a circle scarf this weekend, and have to find the USB cable for my camera before I can show it to you!
I also got out the teal/blue/purple afghan and all the yarns and put a few more inches on yesterday. I do love that big old thing! See Feb. 15 2007 entry for a photo. I'm ready to keep at least one afghan project going at all times.
For the first time I put a life line into some lace on Saturday. I used dental floss. I got instructions on how to do it from the friendly folks at Trumpet Hill yarn shop up in Latham. Of course, that was *after* ripping it out three times due to dropped stitches.
