Ok, so I've been in a lot of transition the past couple months. My apologies for not being around. While I think cables are delightful, my new best friend is lace. I just finished a scarf in a yarn ordered from the Netherlands simply because I loved the colorway...what a fantastic way to use the skein. My thanks to Jim for the inspiration. I didn't know if I had enough yarn to make a scarf, much less a lace scarf. (does lace take more or less yarn than stockinette?)
I'm finding I've come a long way from feeling the need to get everything done NOW. Besides the scarf, I knit a sock (and need to finish the mate), finished a terribly belated wedding afghan, and made a mitts/neckwarmer/hat set. I'm no longer afraid of skinny yarn or small needles!! And frogging and tinking doesn't bother me nearly as much as it did. Like I said, I've come a long way from using size 15 needles for every project.
Whoo hoo! Yay for me!
