I seem to have lost my lace momentum. It's been replaced with cable mojo.
First, I whipped up this square for a future baby blanket (it's going to be one of a bunch of squares knit by a group of friends of the mother-to-be).
The heart cable was designed by another member of our group who is currently suffering from ailments that prevent her from knitting tricksy stuff. (I'm not fessing up as to who yet, because the blankie is a secret). I liked the idea of her design and my knitting combining in this gift for our mutual friends' baby.
I have enough of the yarn left over that I really want to knit another square (and had 8" squares been assigned, I would have plenty). But so far, it appears that I don't have enough. I've tried one nifty lace heart that I thought would be a neat counter-point to this one... but ran out of yarn about 2/3 of the way through. Alas. To knit another full square would mean buying another skein, and thus knitting two more... for which I don't have time given the deadline for mailing so that the wonderful woman who is assembling the thing can get that done. I am forced to admit that I can't work up a second square.
But... knitting cables on nice big yarns (worsted weight) got me started on the Must Have Cardigan, which I'm now doing along with Maria and the Divine though Blogless Elizabeth. Maria is way ahead of me, and I'm trying to catch up. I've finished one whole repeat of the larger cable pattern on two sleeves:
Elizabeth is behind me, having swatched but not yet cast on. She's trying to persuade me to slow down. She might get her way if I decide to go back and fix the error that people with keep observation skills will see in this picture:
I blame Gibbs and Abby. Whaddya think? worth fixing?
Meanwhile, it's time again for some Unconscious Mutterings
