My Medusa is finally finished! I'm kinda loving it!

It took forever mostly because the circular needle I was using kept coming apart and I had to rip back to my lifeline. About 60 zillion times. And most of them on the last repeat. Finally my husband looked at me and said "You know, you could glue that together so that won't keep happening". Well, sure. If you want to do it the easy way.

This was a fun little knit. It comes in two verions, one is all lace and the other has a big expanse of stockinette. I went with the all lace version. I've been on the road quite a bit over the past couple of months and it was a nice companion in all the airports and hotel rooms I've been frequenting.

I particularly like the zigzag pattern. The harder angles appeal to me for some reason. I think it's a nice contrast with the decidedly pink of the Lincoln Park Zoo colorway here.

OMG LOVE IT!!! Making one in that same colorway in Shepherd sock. How beautiful, and you'll forgive me for taking some glee in the fact that an experienced knitter has the same problems we do. Well done!

The needle kept coming apart? On a lace project?? Holy cow. I would have chucked it into the circular file and continued with a better one.

Your Medusa is beautiful!

Sheri, obviously you are smarter than I am. I don't know why I was determined to keep on going.

That is a spectacular shade of pink. Got to get me some of that.
