Coming along nicely, thank you very much! I am up to the sleeve shaping on the back, moving along at a reasonably quick pace for something that is such a fine gauge.
I have to say, I love knitting this pattern!
It took me a little while to get the hang of the instructions and the lace chart, but with the aid of stitch markers at each repeat and a trusty row counter, we are moving along without trouble. I had one hairy moment, when discovering an error row (6 rows back, mind you? Note to self, you can't watch tennis and knit lace late at night - you are not that proficient!), but thankfully managed to rip it back without losing any yarnovers.
I have also been doing a bit of re-stocking of the bookcase.
This came home with me the other night...
not usually a fan of celebrity books, but I love this one. Not really about the celebrity, I suppose!

I've been eyeing this off for a while, finally took the plunge...

and this one is to stop the open-mouthed look of horror that appears when I mention that I have never read any EZ patterns, or advice!!!
