A Whole Lot of Not Much

Considering that it's been 10 days since I posted, you'd think I'd have more to say!

I've been knitting -- I've done a few more repeats on Stonewall, finished one sock and one mitt, and worked a bit more on Bougainvillea (more than this picture shows!).

Bougainvillea socks

Nothing exciting and nothing finished.

I've got a bad case of startitis, and what I want to start is a triangular shawl. A couple weeks ago, I mentioned how I had to knit the Fountain Pen Shawl from the current Interweave Knits, and how I wanted to splurge and use Helen's Lace. One of my LYSes carries it, but didn't have any solids, so they've ordered some for me, in a couple different colors. In the meantime, I decided to start Anne's Whispering Pines -- I bought that exact cranberry yarn ages ago -- and then realized I had no size 2 and 2.5 circular needles! So maybe I'll pull out the long dormant Hidcote...

Hidcote 2

I think there's more than that done.... I guess I'll find out!

All this lace! I can tell you're ready for spring. Some really beautiful patterns here.

Hey, at least you're knitting.
I'm poring over knitting code (er pattern) trying to find hidden error so I can correct it for the test knitters for a mitt I wrote up a year ago...
I think it'd be faster to knit it.. but if I'm knitting, I've got deadline stuff to work on.
