A few weekends ago, LCK & I stopped by Artfibers and I couldn't resist buying some Tsuki. A whole cone of Tsuki. Now that I'm a master lace knitter and all. *cough*
2,318 yards of silk 40% superkid mohair 60%. (Doesn't "superkid" conjure up images of a little goat wearing a knitted cape with a big S emblazoned on his chest?)
Speaking of master lace knitting. I was about halfway through Chart B of clue one of the Mystery Stole when something, probably my concentration, went terribly wrong. I had to rip back about 5 rows to a lifeline that I, thank God, happened to put in. (note to self: when putting in a lifeline on a lace project indicate on the pattern exactly which row you thread the lifeline in. You're not that good yet and it will save you 30 minutes of anguish trying to figure out where you are).
So it was getting close to midnight and I had to put the knitting down and get to bed. I'll be stuck at work all day just twitching to get back at it and see if I figured out where I went wrong. I also found a YO in the wrong place that's driving me crazy but it's below the lifeline so I'm going to have to live with it or start over.
I think I need something like a lace knitting GPS device.
