Yes, it's been a whole week since I last posted. I really do have a good excuse: the computer was in the shop. But now it's all fixed up, and the malware is off. The computer should be running like a champ.
Knitting news: I finished the Nurmilintu Scarf. It's knit with lace weight yarn and size 2 needles. (I worked on it for 2 1/2 months, but it seemed like a lot longer.) Not a flattering picture. Could I have found a more colorful towel on which to block this scarf??? I obviously did not choose it for its qualities as a background. Not even sure you can distinguish the variegated colors and lacy bits in the scarf. The bind off on the lacy edge was new to me: bind off 5, cast on 2 by using the knitted cast-on method, then repeat. It made an interestingly scalloped edge. So, when the blocking is finished and the loose threads are woven in, I'll attempt a more artistic shot. But, most importantly, it's OFF THE NEEDLES!
I'm excited to work on something new...but haven't quite had the time to make a decision; so many projects in the que. And too many other holiday tasks have been keeping me on the run.
