An utter lack of excitement

Seriously, I get bored on your behalf even thinking about an update entry. There’s the fir cone lace cardigan, which is now done but is still waiting for a proper photo shoot:

There’s the shoalwater shawl, which is another repeat closer to being finished but still, unblocked lace vomit:

And there’s the phyllo yoked pullover, which is currently still in the “miles of stockinette” stage.


There is one nail-biter issue with the shawl, actually. The pattern calls for “About 1200 yards lace-weight”. The Andrea silk has 1093. Now, in the pattern as written there’s an applied I-cord border at the top of the shawl, so I have an easy way to reduce my yarn requirements. The problem is, will it be enough? Anyone have any guesses?

  1. Going on blind faith (and for the sake of your sanity), I’m going to tell you that you have enough yarn.

    (Disclaimer: If you run out of yarn, I will not be held responsible. I will, however, help you drown your sorrows at the local lys.)

    The cardigan looks very nice!

  2. Oh my you have been a very busy bee! Your cardigan is beautiful! I can’t believe how many things you have been knitting…. lovely work.
