I learned a valuable lesson on Friday - do not attempt to knit lace in the lunchroom! My cowl ended up with a rather peculiar lace pattern afterwards, so I ripped it back. Ouch! It should go much faster this time around.

My SP11 scarf is blocking now. It should be dry tomorrow morning, so I can ship it out. I'm sending it with 2.50 mm Knit Picks Harmony dpns. It's unfortunate that green is the dominant color in this set. I hope my pal doesn't mind too much!

Moebius Class tonight

The moebius class was canceled, so the LYS suggested their sophomore knitting class instead. The other women in class declared the moebius to be senior knitting, at least. :-) I ripped back once, after knitting a definite freak of nature, but got it the second time. I hope. Time will tell. Behold, after 2 hours of knitting, I have this:The teacher hadn't knit a moebius before, so it was a learning experience for both of us.

My second SP11 package was well-received. I must block the scarf and get it out next week for the final reveal package. I've been distracted by health issues the past 3 weeks while the doctors try to figure out what is wrong with me. I have medical tests planned out through December, so in the meantime, I'm knitting. What else is there to do?

I finished the SP11 scarf

My SP11 scarf is finished. I just need to block it, and it will be ready to go. I don't know if I'll buy Lorna's Laces again. The yarn was splitty and I found 5 knots in 1 1/3 skeins. That's an awful lot of knots, considering how much this yarn costs. Several of the knots were only in a single ply, which made them difficult to see until I was just about to knit them. But the scarf did come out nice.
