still no knitting

No pictures either.

Because I forgot my camera back in Nashville, which is all well and good when I’m actually in Tennessee.  Since I’m in Washington at the moment, it’s all a bit difficult.

But the real problem: I have a sinking feeling that my Shetland Tea Shawl is going to be too small.  There is just no way that my tight-knitting ways in combination with lace-weight yarn and US4/3.5mm needles aren’t going to spell disaster of a tiny variety.  You know when you avoid working on a project because it’s somehow not right?  Yeah, that’s what’s going on here.  I spent all of last week knitting my way through this stripey wonder, all the while dreading taking a closer look at the tea shawl.

It’s time to face facts.  I’m going to have to start over on larger needles … I just hope the malabrigo lace can recover.

  1. This sounds like a great time of year to be back in the Pacific NW! I’m jealous…

    BTW, I love the combination of colors on your stripy Ishbel. I never would have thought to do a stripy version!

    Bummer about the Shetland Tea Shawl. Any chance it will block a lot bigger? Or can you add more yarn and embiggen it? I HATE ripping and reknitting Malabrigo lace b/c it’s so fragile.
