Knitting slacker

Um, still no real progress to report. I had gotten to the point where I thought I was running out yarn for the flower basket shawl. So, I started the edge rows and got all the way to the end and realized that I still had plenty of yarn. All I can say is that those skeins of Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace have a ton of yardage for the money. Of course, all that leftover yarn was going to drive me insane so I ripped out the edging (if only I had put in some lifelines) and then spent some quality time picking up the stitches and making sure I hadn't lost any. Basically, it looks about the same as last time.

However, what I have been doing is working on my submission for Glampyre's contest. I think I am happy with the tank top design. I'm not sure about the rules for showing the designs so I'll wait until she picks a winner and then maybe I'll post it. Who knows, if it doesn't get selected maybe I'll actually try to create the pattern myself.

I'm looking forward to seeing your finished shawl, especially after that extra work! I've definitely got to start using life lines too - I run into that problem a lot.

I hope you post a photo of your tank top later on - I'm sure it's lovely..

Ug. I've done my fair share of ripping, but AN ENTIRE EDGE OF A SHAWL? I bow down to you in awe... I hope it works out well for you!
