I spent a good chunk of the weekend winding yarn and swatching for the TTTKAL, but I also wanted to make good headway on at least one of my shawl samples. Saturday evening I sat down with Netflix, some graph paper, and my garter and lace shawl and finally started the lace part.
I'm really loving how this is coming along so far. It took a couple tries to get the transition from garter stitch to lace just right, but I think it's going to be really gorgeous once it's blocked. I changed to a much bigger needle for the lace section, and the effect is just what I was looking for. I'm hoping to have this pattern ready for my editor within the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for more on that.
I also bought a car! It's been a couple years since I've had one now, and with me moving to my own apartment in less than six weeks, it's about time I got one so I can go out of town without having to bug people for their vehicles. It's a 2000 Chevrolet Impala and I've named her Annabelle. She runs like a dream and has a ton of trunk space, and I'm looking forward to many adventures with her.
