I am inordinately proud. You'd think I'd negotiated peace in the Middle East or something. This is the first lace I've done in a long, long time. Sure there's been a sock here or there with a YO and even a sweater with bit of edging, but this is the biggest piece that I've persevered through in years. (Yes, I recognize that this is no Princess Shawl. Baby steps.)
Normally, I'm a product knitter. I'm all about the moment when you get to put on whatever it is you've been working on. Or get to see the look on the face of the person you're giving it to.
But, there was something about this project that really got my juices flowing. I was getting up a little early to give myself a few minutes to work on it before heading out to the studio for the day. I stayed up past my bedtime to do one more row. I got all wrapped up in counting stitches and figuring out how to read the fabric to see if I on track. I found it curiously compelling.
Then, to top things off, we decided to do a Milkweed KAL here at Lorna's Lace. So, two pieces of lace for me in a row. I'm beginning to worry that this might be the beginning of a new obsession. I even caught myself eyeing the Helen's Lace a little while ago.....
