What Every Knitter Needs
A giant crocheted doily! Okay, so it isn't really a doily, but that is what it looks like to me. I was getting a little bored with the Frost Flowers Shawl and due to the abundance of white fur in my apartment, and the white furs ability to be attracted anything dark, I don't work on the shop sample in my apartment. I picked up some Calmer from my stash, ordered 1 more skein on line, and started the Lacy Cocoon Shrug by Annie Modesit. I don't know what it was about the shrug that drew me, but I was captured. The Calmer was meant to be used for Tempting II, but I wasn't ready to start that project yet, so I will have to buy more Calmer. Quite a tragedy really, having an excuse to buy more of a yarn love so much. It is crocheted, and I have crocheted for awhile. I had forgotten how quickly crochet moves, and I am not a quick crocheter. It helps that most of this piece is simply chains, but I got this far in basically 1 day, while working on the brown sweater.
As far as my brown sweater goes, progress is being made. The frogged back is over 1/2 way done.
I guess that is all I am going to say for today. I hope that the weather is better for you then it is here in Boston (predicting rain every day until next week, blah!)
