Why so long? For one thing, it's a lace project & because it's so long & involved, I was
Therefore, it was slow going. Not so slow that I needed a year to complete it, but this wasn't TV knitting, mindless knitting, even knitting I could do while letting my mind wander. This was knitting that demanded my full attention & that's why I only worked on it when I knew I could give it.
Yarn: Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere (yes, cashmere!) 2-ply, color Blackberry Fudge
Needles: US size 3, KnitPicks Options nickel-plated
The KP needles are perfectly pointed for lacework; I bought these right before the Addi lace needles became available & all the rage.

WIPs. They're long-term projects, too, so I'm trying to decide if I'm going to cast on something smaller.
In the meantime, I'm going to step away from the blog for the time being. I've had some professional setbacks that have been disappointing & frustrating. I need to regroup & spend some time with some good books. I don't know how much knitting I'll get done on my break; maybe none. Maybe I'll get my dream job & have some good news to tell when I get back. I certainly hope so. I'll see you sometime after the 4th of July. Til then, happy knitting, crafting & living! Pin It Now!
