Hey hey. Guess what I learned last week?
I learned to count to 7! no really. Not only that... but I can now tell the difference between 7 stitches and 9 stitches ... It's true!
Wanna know what happened next? lace knitting, that's what.
Icarus got her (his?) first set of feather ends. Here's a closer look
She'd (he? I get confused; I mean the shawl is named after a guy in a myth, but I've always referred to shawls as "she')... ahem... The garment would now be even bigger had I not then started the next tier of feathers offset by half a feather width. Oops. I WANTED them offset, but wound up knitting them even with the previous set.
Back to the frog pond... duh. Now that I've reset the placement of the feathers... I'm well into the next set, and must decide on the length of these feathers -- how often do I offset???
Tomorrow (I hope) you'll get to see MORE progress even.
And may I say how much I LOVE this yarn which is showing ZERO signs of wear despite repeated trips to the frog pond? I am so psyched!
