I have just finished the first lace repeat, so far so good … five more rounds and then onto the waist decreases (this is where it went pear-shaped last time).

So I was knitting away and it was all going swimmingly (I was also watching this) and I had that moment when I thought ‘how would I feel if I had to unravel all of this?’. Would there be tears? Well there probably wouldn’t be tears, but there would be grumpiness. So I decided to put in a life-line…
I successfully completed the waist decreases and I am just onto the bust increases – I’m thinking of putting a life line in for when everything goes pear shaped.
There is a nice rhythm to this and (so far) the yarn has been angelic (except for the first ball which fell apart). I haven’t quite got to the point where I could do this out and about and keep track of the lace pattern.
The other day I succumbed to the lure of the yarn shop and bought two new sock yarns
I couldn’t really help myself …but they are beautiful.
