I know I’ve been real whiny lately and I appologize for that. I could blame it on PMS but since my surgery, I don’t know when that is anymore. So, on with the show:
I bring you Hedera. I know, I know. I keep swearing I won’t knit anymore Cookie A. patterns after Pomatomus drop-kicked me. Then I got back up, put my mouth-guard back in and knit Monkey. I knocked that out and I’m in the ring again. I’m having much better luck with this yarn, KnitPicks Sock Memories in “Paper Dolls”. (Sock Memories as a line name has been discontinued; KP now calls it simply Memories and some colorways have been discontinued as well).
I had doubts about whether this yarn would work but with time I’ve come to see Hedera as a pattern that doesn’t really have a distinct pattern, but rather that it’s basic lace. It’ll probably show itself more once it’s stretched out on my fat calves. 🙂
I’m almost finished with the main section of Icarus, and look forward to getting it done and blocked. So far, it’s been a fun ride.
Not real interesting yet, huh? Worry not, the bind-off is a-coming.
Yeah, I promised pics of the other shawls I’ve finished this month and I keep forgetting. I’ve got to overhaul and rearrange my bedroom because soon I’ll be leaving Verfuckzon and going to something else for internet and phone. I can’t wait! If I disappear for a few days, something got farkled but I will return.
I said last post I might finish Icarus by the end of the month. Hmmyeah, I don’t think so. Not because Hedera stepped into the fray; I’d have slowed down on them just to do more work on Icarus. It’s because I’ve started a mystery shawl that I’m making up myself!!
YES! I’m testing it out on some Misti Alpaca in the Maize colorway. I hope it works out. I said I wanted to spin yarn for and design my own shawl but I was kind of half-assing. Especially with the ump-teen failures I’ve had with making up shawl patterns. But, somehow I’m making good on this… I’ll let you in on it once it looks like something.. hee.
