updates

One scroll sock from More Sensational Knitted Socks almost finished. I've used some more of Katie's lovely wool and am pleased with this one. Photos soon.

My little blue sweater from Interweave Knits with its lacy panels has hardly been touched this week. Despite this I've cast on, somewhat late in the action for a February Lady Sweater. I've dilly-dallied about this but finally succumbed. So not much there for a long lacy summer. Perhaps the "lacy" part has turned into "lazy" already and it's still only November.

I have made progress on my lacy fern scarf, so all is not lost as far as lace goes. I've now done about 12-14 inches of it and am pleased with it. However, there are just so many times the same colour, same pattern, same wool can be photographed and I think I've passed that. I try to do about three pattern repeats (36 rows) a day, hopefully more. This means I am about a fifth of the way finished, although that's really a guess as I'm using 100 gm of sock wool instead of laceweight and 3 mm needles. I'm really playing finished length and amount of wool by ear but it should be fairly long.
