Ring a bell?

If this speaks to you, you know you're a knitter.


One mate-less sock finished on the 24th.

Doesn't mean I can't have fun with it though! Hope everyone is well, and has a happy and safe year-end wrap up.



ooh, and in response to Diana (I'm sorry I didn't post sooner!) the error in the POTW stole is that as written, Chart B for the edging contains an error. The second-to-last stitch of rows 9, 11, 13 and 15 should be marked as a k2tog.

Just ripped the semi-secret project, and need to go and rip the super-secret project.

I try to avoid complaining, but dude? This week kind of sucks.

Ooh, also, thank you everyone for the wonderful comments on the shawl. My grandmother loves it.

FO: Print O The Wave

I cast off the stole yesterday and pulled it off the blocking mattress today.
Pattern: Eunny Jang's Print O The Wave
Needles: 120cm addi lace, 4.5mm
Yarn: just over 2 skeins (like... JUST) of handmaiden Mini Maiden
Start: mid-november, 2007
Size: 48x64"
End: December 11, 2007
Mods: Knit the body in one piece, didn't graft in the middle. Also the yarn weight, much heavier than called for.
Love it, really really love it. The yarn was a dream (even if the colour is elusive), the pattern was pretty well written, bar one error. I feel good about this knit.

Sorry, but the other project I have going is semi-secret!

The Sigh of Relief Heard 'Round the World

The Yarn Gods have smiled upon me! There was not only one more skein left at the shop, but three! (in their stash in the back)

Granted the price of the shawl just increased by 50%, when I'm going to use ~20 grams of the third skein. But it is worth it.

I may have proclaimed my undying love to the young lady on staff, oops.

Oh, and this means that for anyone who loved the colourway, there are at least 2 more in existence.

I'm going to go study now. No more posts until my next exam and shawl are done.

nail biting

Nearly halfway through the border! I am crossing my fingers that my remaining yarn holds out, but deep down... I fear that i may have committed the cardinal sin of not buying enough yarn (and there is no more available, as far as I know).
