(She's got to do something while those cakes are baking.)
I've sort of stalled on the hat making -- so I'll need to give them some attention this week.
Of course I've stalled because I've been obsessed with knitting the Lyra. It's moving along more quickly than I expected -- at the cost of actually doing anything else. Like laundry, shopping or sleep.
I'm becoming a convert to the German charting style - there are definite advantages, particularly when you have long stretches of plain knitting or a set of stitches to be repeated X times.
I'm also considering abandoning my beloved Addi Lace needles for KnitPick circulars. I used the KnitPicks for the early rounds and switched to the Addi's recently when the KnitPicks were too short. The smoothness of the KnitPicks and the super sharp points are sorely missed - particularly now that I'm attacking the mini cables in the flowers.
That's right. This Niebling guy has put cables in lace.
Cables. In lace.
Worlds colliding. Anarchy.
I can only imagine what else he has up his Lyra sleeve.
