A girl must think of gifts already.
So, this morning, before I came to work, I was going to be late anyway, and had made the time up, but I was early from my lateness from work, so I decided to go to WallyMart to see if they had size 2 mm knitting needles. Yup, the short ones, to knit socks. Well, I am NOT going to knit socks, but going to test the lace knitting with the ultra thin yarn.
I suspect, though, that I will be crocheting tonight.

I made one swatch last night, and believe me, I am embarrassed to admit that I frogged it several times, row by row, to the beginning garter stitch part. I have no idea how could I have either one stitch too many or one not enough. How does that happen on lace knitting?
I spent at least 3 hours making that little 35 stitches and 32 rows piece. I cannot believe it.
Of course I had breaks, like coffee and some telly watching but basically I was just knitting and swearing.
The color is faint yellow, it almost fainted when I decided to spray water on it. If I don't feel like crocheting tonight, I'll make another swatch; using row counters and stitch markers, and bigger needles and different yarn. If not, then I will just crochet.

This is one of the IC motifs, I made four of them, but I don't have any pictures of other motifs.

This is one little thing I found when surfing:
There are some that I can relate to someone. Assmosis is one and the other is Stress Puppy.
Stress Puppy gets on my nerves nearly every day at work.
I sometimes confuse myself with 404, but then again, I don't know where 404 is.
The last few weeks have not been the greatest. But hopefully things will get better. Hubby had a surgery on Thursday, and is at home, recovering. I spent six hours in the hospital crocheting, waiting first to get hubby to the OR, and then while he was there, and after. I got some major
Last night finally, I was able to try my vest on. Hubby thinks it's beautiful. He's smart. I am now finishing off the front and the hem, and then look for buttons. My Irish Crochet top is also coming out nicely, but that one isn't going to be done anytime soon.
As soon as the vest is done, I will post a picture, and might even find time to post more often.
