Ok, so my current project is sneeeeeeeeeeky, surprise baby knitting.

This is what you get . . .

Yeah, I know. Boring blog fodder. But what's a girl to do?

In love with increases

Well, in learning just howtheheck I'm supposed to M1R, I stumbled upon knittinghelp.com

Has everyone seen this site? It really is worth a visit.

My absolute favourite right now is the page of increases. It shows ON ONE PAGE all of the increase variations in actual knitting, describes what they are good for and when they can each be used best, and then has an uber-clear VIDEO that shows you how to do it.

Magic, I tell you.

Go - play! You'll enjoy it!

Icarus has flown off the needles...

... and man, does she need to be blocked.

I love knitting lace. I think it's time to invest in some blocking wires. Because check this out:

Yeah, unblocked lace. Scintillating, isn't it?

Close-up? Meh.

But just you wait 'till she's all blocked!

Almost an icarus!!!

As much as I may not want to admit it... I seem to have abandoned my blog for Ravelry. Eep! Here is my re-attempt at posting regularly. (Although, I don't think I was terribly good at it in the first place.)

Oh my goodness! I have FINALLY finished the last chart, and I am halfway through the 2nd-last edging row of dear, dear Icarus.

This project has amazed me for the last 18 months, and I can't wait to have it off the needles. At the same time though, I think I'll have some finishing pangs... I've been working on this for so long, that I just don't know what to do without it!

(I'll find something, I'm sure).

Stay tuned for an update sooooon. (Of course, there will have to be blocking, and I have a new 650 sq. foot abode. Wish me luck on that one!)
