Like watching paint dry

Posted by on Sunday, March 16th, 2008

I’m pretty sure the knitting is finished on the Heather Ale Cardigan, but I can’t be sure yet.  Like most  knitted lace, it looked pretty sloppy and unappealing unblocked.   Unlike most knitted lace, this sweater really needs to fit nicely to be worth having.  I think I stopped at the right places.  I blocked it using the lace blocking wires my wonderful Aunt got me this Christmas.

I love the light in the second shot–very fake-old-photo-montage, no?

Now I just get to wait for it to dry, hope it fits the way I planned, and think about what sort of beads to use on the points and which sweater to knit next.

I finished that string pieced potholder, and made another ten sock bags, but then the evil cough caught up with me.

I’m trying to think about spindle, dance shoe, and felted bag designs, but I’m not thinking as clearly as I’d like.
