Pretty!

The lace is coming along quite well. It would be quicker, but I keep stopping and stretching it out so that I can admire the pattern. The stitch pattern for the leafy section is very simple, so I haven't had any problems memorising it and everything seems to be progressing ok. I am trying not to think too hard about the nupps as yet...

I got my mitts on more sock yarn last week, in a swap for a couple of patterns with jam_mam so am now the proud owner of some Opal Zebra. It's more white than I was expecting, but am really looking forward to having some fun zebra socks! I shall be doing them on two 2.5mm circs, as I finally managed to get hold of some 60cm length ones. I was really surprised at how none of the shops that I visited had them, as it seemed that everyone knitted socks on two circs but no.

Whee! The lace is looking splendid. When you do the nupps, you'll be up on me, and can point and laugh at the nupp-less knitter.

I've swtiched to Blogger Beta and it does have some nice features. I just wish it would keep me logged in! Grrr!

Love the lace and how it's coming along - I just heard a podcast about the nupps (trying to remember which one now - CraftBorg, I think?), and wish you luck with them!
