of light and shade
I have to admit, I love the look of lace pre-blocked. I know, it looks like a crumpled sack, a tired old jellyfish, etc, but oh...when you hold it up to the light, and all the subtlety and potential is revealed. It's magic.
Entomology has been ticking over nicely, and I'm now nearly halfway through the pattern (given that the stitch count grows each row though, I guess that means about 35% done?)
I'm now managing about half a repeat a night, but life is busy and I have to admit there are now nights that I do no knitting at all!! Who ever would have thought it possible? But yes, Virginia - life does indeed go on if I do not manage to pick up my sticks everyday!
What I do find now is those times I get to sit with my string and sticks is oh-so precious, and a time to savour. I also have project-monogamy at present, so it does very much feel like a time of process and journey - just perfect to start a new year.
