Five repeats to go – this afternoon’s hospital appt might just finish off the centre panel.
missalicefaye, I suggested slipping the edge loops onto a needle a few at a time because I thought they’d be easier to knit, if they were on one; and because it might be easier to get the count right if the two operations, the picking-up and the knitting, were kept separate.
Anyone who follows the link to missalice’s blog will see some beautiful lace knitting.
Susoolu, I tried to leave a comment on your blog yesterday embracing you as a sister across the miles, who knows what “decimate” means. Haloscan swallowed it, I think. I abandoned Haloscan myself when Blogger went beta. How do you stand on “beg the question”?
Tricia, I would very much welcome a report on Malabrigo lace-weight at Stash Yarns. Not that I need yarn. Not that I’ve got time to knit it. I’ve just had a look at their website. Clearly, some wonderful stuff. How can you bear it?
Not much else. I had a chance to talk to a local vegetable gardener yesterday – a good one. He says it’s been a very funny year. He’s had patchy germination too.
I hope we’ll get back to Strathardle soon. Today’s hospital appt is the last actual impediment on our calendar, and Wimbledon has made great inroads on the ironing. It’s like an annual visit from Rumpelstiltskin.
