Hell hath frozen over ~ 2006-07-24
Jenn has pinky double dog dare promised that she did not cheat. So, she will be the recipient of the pooping sheep. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised. I figured you would all see the prize and claim that you had cheated until the cows came home just to get out of receiving it. I am beyond thrilled that you, my readers, have my wasted sense of humor. I will likely end up at the craft store sometime soon and will try to seek out the pooper for KarenK who will be disappointed at Jenn’s stand up non-cheating self.
On to the real news of the day.
You feel that?
That cold breeze?
Ohh, is it, perhaps, freezing?
I. am. knitting. lace.
I picked this yarn up at last year’s New York Sheep and Wool Festival. I needed something to occupy my mind and hands. I figured, eh? What the hell. If ANYTHING is going to keep my mind busy it’s going to be lace. It sure ain’t reading, or staring, or tv watching, or showering, or sleeping, or… well, you get the drift.
The pattern is the Flower Basket Shawl from Interweave Knits. So far so good. Armed with my trusty dental floss (for use as a lifeline) I have completed two repeats only 8 million more.
Watch out for flying pigs.
that shawl is GORGEOUS. i am a lacetard, (that is, i cannot knit lace,) and i am insanely jealous.

Looks to me like Future Man is actually the one knitting it. Or is he just helping with the yarn overs?

Oh, hurray! See, of course you can knit lace–even after all those months of telling us you couldn’t….
Just wait till you block it; you’ll be addicted.

What Laura said. I enjoyed knitting my very first lace shawl, and all, but the magic that occurred when I blocked it?? Wow. Now I only wish I knit lace faster so that I could have that “fix” more often. It’s wonderful!
Yours is looking great!

Way to go! Love the color!! Be careful it’s addictive! I’ve got 3 lace shawls on the needles & haven’t finished one yet, just keep starting them.

Is THAT why it’s so cold up here on the north shore? I thought it was just all these Yankees welcoming the summer tourists.

Man, I wish you had started it last week, it was hot as hell…
I just finished FBS, it’s a nice knit. Have fun!

HEY!!!! Me TOO!
I’d suggest a mini knitalong, but given the terrible KAL curse that would instantly befall us, I’ll refrain.

You go girl. Embrace the new and different.

I am extremely proud of you for doing this. The FBS is a great first lace pattern.
