Up to date

If yesterday was about physical cleaning and marshaling my stash, then today has been about electronic organizing. I spent the day getting a bunch of networking set up for my (seemingly never ending) job hunt. When I was satisfied with that, I got my Ravelry notebook in order. I now have pictures and stash information for all of my Projects.

I'm pretty good about getting photos of finished objects (thanks Ry!) but terrible at the in progress photos. At least for the moment, I'm all caught up. Would you like to see one?


I know that lace never really looks good until it's blocked, so it's probably not that interesting to you yet, but this is my current obsession.  It's Evelyn A. Clark's Swallowtail Shawl done in Malabrigo Rastita.  I have made this before in lace weight, and have been meaning to make it again in a heavier weight ever since.

The lace weight version I made came out rather small. I decided to follow the directions for the DK weight version this time so that my shawl will be nice and big. So far it's coming along nicely.


The first time I made this, it was my first lace project and I remember thinking it was very hard. This time it's giving me no trouble at all. Just goes to show what 4 years of experience can do for you. I'm hoping to have it done by the 17th so I can show the students in my Garter Tab knitting class. I have 5 of 14 repeats done... we shall see.
