1/2 Post

Today you are getting what I consider a 1/2 post. In other words, no pictures. Boring, I know. But life is just getting in the way of my blogging.

I have been making progress on the Kid Merino shawl. But you know lace, it just looks like a big blob until you block it, so I won't bore you with another blob picture. Just last night Opal and I were discussing this. Lace is just like magic when you pin it out, before that it is just "eh".

I finished the little cardi for my daughter. It fits great, but I still need a button for it. I am going to look for one today and I will post a pic when I have the button sewn on.

The designing is still coming along, but I am stuck on the charting. I really need an mentor lol. A great pattern writing, charting genius mentor. I have finally figured out some great things about Excel, but I still have so much to learn. I am thinking about getting a charting program, but they are a little pricey, so I may have to wait a bit.

Well I have like 1252 errands to run today so I better scoot. That committee I'm in charge of is just sucking the life out of me. I will make an excuse to stop at Barnes and Noble today though, because I heard they have some knitting books for 50% off. Gotta love a bargain!

I went and had a look at the Kid Merino, since you're using it and you know? It looks really nice - and it's not terribly pricey either. Are you liking the way it works up?

Hope your errands don't wear you out and good luck at the book store! Hooray for bargains!

I hear you on the errands. Today I got sucked even deeper into the vortex of Catholic school volunteerism...

I totally forgot to mention a Yahoo Group called Charting Lace. They might be able to help you.

Don't wear yourself to the bone this weekend. Mmkay?
