Whew, the Project That Ate The Entire Universe (aka my new knitting pattern) is just about finished. Thank goodness! I really missed doing other things, like sleeping and stuff. The new Little Dorrit & Co. embroidery patterns are almost ready as well, I’ll show you those when they go up in the shop later in the week. I was even able to enjoy my second lace lesson yesterday, out in my teacher’s lovely garden.
Ok, so the second lesson was a little overwhelming. We crammed a lot of information into two tiny hours! This is my second sample, but honestly, I can’t remember what it is! I have some handouts to remind me, and I think I better take an evening out this week to take notes and practice. At the same time though, there is something starting click somewhere in my thick and soupy brain. It’s only baby understanding though — I can’t even put my finger on what makes sense exactly, there were just moments where it seemed almost logical. For about a minute. Anyway, we got all the way to trying a basic shell pattern in the second lesson, but only through one shell. I’ve been told to finish and maybe try it all over, but I’m pretty sure I forgot what to do the second I left the lesson.
I’ll try to finish it later this week and I’ll show it off if I manage to get anywhere decent. Wish me luck!
