To expand on the last, I'm sitting here at my computer which is my window on the world, I have a cat in my lap, my DH is just across the hall, and I have lots of yarn, quilting fabrics & books. I'm not a traveller, so I'm happy right where I am.
I spent almost three hours last night tinking back on the Wool Peddler shawl because of an extra YO in the first row of the 4th lace repeat. I have that row redone (correctly this time) and I'm now trying to add in another lifeline in the following purl row. I can see where a life line would be extremely handy, but putting one in is a pure pain. The first one before I started the lace was done by knitting each stitch with the shawl yarn and the lifeline (LL) yarn held together and then at each stitch, pulling the end of the LL yarn through the stitch before knitting the next one. This time I'm using a yarn needle to run the yarn through the stitches on the left needle before I knit them. It's working a bit better but it's still not easy. It took me over half an hour to get half way across the row. The jury is still out on knitting lace - I love the look of it, but I'm questioning the hassle. Still, that's probably because I haven't knit anything challenging for quite some time (knitting for charity means getting things done in a hurry rather than spending a lot of time so the hats, scarves & shawls are pretty mindless and can be knit almost on automatic.) I'll keep going and I hope someday that I'll learn to love lace as much as some of my knitting friends do.
