Goal of finishing latest preemie hats: met.
Otherwise, I have found that there are drawbacks to vacation, most especially house work. Spent the whole day in the laundry room or with a spray bottle of bleach and scrub brush in hand. Summer vacation always makes me wonder how I get through the school year, chore-wise. Not much knitting got done today at all. :( I did spend several hours last night, once AGAIN fixing errors I had made in the Coral Columns pattern. It's so easy to end up with an extra stitch and not discover it until about 12 rows later! I finally had to give it up and finish this morning. So, after several hours of knitting and repairing, I am on row short of where I started in the first place yesterday. This may just be the next project to be frogged ... but the extra fine merino shows the pattern so crisply that I hate to let it go. Obviously, this will be my summer nemesis.
There's been much talk of lace lately among the blogs that I follow. I guess it's that time of year. No one wants to sit in the heat and work with wool and a heavy sweater on her lap. Because it's that time of year, I was really looking forward to the new Piecework issue, which is about lace. Unfortunately, I think I would go blind trying to knit, basically, thread into a handbag or a shawl. So I'm a little disappointed that the focus is so totally on old-world lace, like the doilies that I learned to crochet when I was in 3rd grade before my Polish great-grandmother lost her sight. I was hoping for something more along the lines of 2-ply lace shawls to die for in a silk/wool combo or a gorgeous scarf pattern. There were some good instructions for blocking a lace pattern, though, so not a total disappointment.
Goal for the weekend (besides repairing the rabbit hutch & giving those bunnies a bath): make significant progress on the leaf lace scarf.
