Yesterday afternoon I had two uninterrupted hours of blissful lace knitting on the Frost Flowers & Leaves Shawl while watching the Democratic debate on CNN. What could be better? I made it almost to the end of my second repeat of chart two (I’d post pictures but there’s basically no change from the last few sack-like photos of crumpled lace).
Things got trickier later in the evening, when I did some after-dinner knitting while catching up on the TV shows that have been lingering on my DVR. You can’t knit lace and watch HEROES, I decided, but politics goes with lace work like sunshine and lollipops.
I’m still debating how many repeats of chart two I’m going to do. I just really want to come away from this monster of a project with a finished object that will be loved and used. So what if I mistake a ssk for a k2tog every once in a while — I’m far more concerned that glamorous will like the shawl and actually wear it sometimes.
