MS3

So, here it is. . .a picture of the Week 1 directions completed.My photography skills are sorely lacking. . .and if you can believe it, this is the BEST picture of THREE that I took while it was pinned on the ironing board! I did steam it while it was there and it seems to be holding that blocking reasonably well. . .if you see it in person you can judge for yourself.

Apparently, July is the month of lace for me. As Kim suggested, I'm easily swayed. . .and I've been listening to the Knitpicks podcast lately. On the podcast, Kelly suggested a year long knitalong following Elizabeth Zimmermann's Almanac. (Yes, I've signed up for that too. . .) In July, the project is a shawl based on the number Pi. It makes a lovely, and simple round shawl--that could be modified in a million ways. While that does appeal to me, I'm not sure I want a round shawl.

So, on July 1, I cast on a Fiber Trends shawl and am busy working on the lace edging. Hopefully I'll have it finished and blocked soon. (I suppose that means I need to chill out on MS3, though, doesn't it?)

Meanwhile, Sally brought her lace linen skirt to The Coffee Beanery last week, and I have a variation of that on needles too...

All I can say is that I'm glad I'm a teacher and have the summer off!
