Wool, in August

Oh boy, this past week or so has been chilly here in Maine. I can not complain though. The weekend was beautiful, perfect for the lobster bake we went to on Saturday, and the visit with old friends on Sunday.
Today though, I need to wear a sweater....again.




I just cast on for the February Lady sweater on Thursday night, only to rip it apart, and start over on Friday. I knew I shouldn't have started something new while watching P.S. I love you.
Lace patterns and I don't get along. I have already messed up again.
Wish me luck on this one, I could use it!

Hmm, don't tell me this about lace patterns. I was really hoping to get to that juliet soon.
Good Luck! You'll whiz through it effortlessly, I am sure. :)

I wish I had you waistline...
No wonder you couldn't knit while watching that movie...it's so hard to see through tears.
I usually put a repeating lace pattern on 3x5 cards and keep the row I'm working on on the top of the stack with a paper clip. That way if I get distracted, I can easily find my row. Looking forward to seeing it completed. You sure are becoming an accomplished knitter.

Yeah, I also tried knitting while watching P.S. I love you....I couldn't see my yarn and needles through my tears!!! Once you get going on the lace, I bet it will get a lot easier. I had to read every row of the gull lace chart for the first few inches, paying lots of attention, but then it flew once I got the hang of it. I bet the same happens for you!

I'm looking forward to seeing your February Lady Sweater. I was just looking through my stash for something that might work for it. Although, I'll have to read the pattern first, lace and I don't get along either!

A lobster bake. That sounds so fun! I do have a strange desire to go to Maine.

You do such amazing work, I'm sure it will all come together.
