Making Progress

August 2nd, 2008 (05:33 pm)

Its slow, but Juno is coming along.
Its much easier now that I don't have to increase anymore, and I'm using stitchmarkers.  That makes it harder to put in lifelines though, so I'm sort of playing with fire...

Anyway, done row 22 of Chart 3.  I'm getting there!

I hate that it looks like I'm knitting a big gstring though...

Should mention, the black thread is my lifeline at the beginning of chart 3, (22 rows ago) I'm a bit further along than this picture shows.

you can still thread in the lifelines, they're just more work than the options trick :P

Oh, I know you still can. And I do. Just not as frequently.

When I could just loop a string through the needle and go about my merry way I was doing it every few rows. Now I'm being a bad knitter and only doing it every 10.

Ooooo! Very nice! I'll get to lace eventually- right now I've gone into mitten madness!

Please don't start lace too soon!
You're making me look bad!

After 5 years knitting its about time I got off my rear and did something semi-challenging. You on the other hand decide "Eh, I've got the knit stitch down, lets try us some fairisle..."
