I blocked my Flacon lace thing, and decided to give it to my Grandmother for Christmas.
I cast off last night and am pleased with the outcome (though I definitely need to lose some weight so I can look svelter in this).
I had finally finished up all my Christmas projects and decided to concentrate on my sock knitting.
I recently had a hankering to knit a pair of socks using DPNs, despite my love of circular needles.
Since money is so tight this year; slow sales in the pottery business, I solicited friends and relatives to send me skeins of there favorite yarns.
i was given one skein, 3.5 oz, 1093 yds, of hand painted silk super fine finger weight yarn. i wanted t make some lace, but wondered how much is needed for a shawl.
