Yarn Along

yarn along

Not the best picture. But I suppose that goes along with the knitting.

This is the 198 yards of heaven shawl. I began it at the beginning of last week. And have frogged it numerous times. I finally figured out how to do the even rows. And how to do the repeat rows. And I still manage to miscount/miss a stitch here or there. I'm really not at all sure how it's going to come out. I can't even say it's because I'm distracted while knitting it. I worked on it for a few hours of total quiet this weekend. Well except for the Olympics. But I even ignored those to figure this out.

And I'm hoping the yarn doesn't run out. This is some I dyed last spring & it is all I have!

I have been reading. Seen here is Still Writing which I am really enjoying. I also am in the middle of The Fountain of St. James Court; or, Portrait of an Artist as an Old Woman. I am enjoying that one as well. With all this snow we've been having I've been having time to knit a little bit and read as I hold a sleeping baby!

  1. I've knit that shawl and it looks beautiful once blocked! Good luck at getting the knitting pattern straight. Lace knitting is not to be interrupted!!

  2. Yes, I agree with Karen, once lace is blocked it comes into it's own glory.
    Enjoy the snow and the sleeping baby.

  3. I hope you have enough yarn - it really is pretty. When I knit lace I use tons of stitch markers so I can keep track of each individual portion until I have it memorized (if at all possible).

  4. Sounds like maybe that scarf is a bit misnamed. ;)
