I first saw this at Three Wishes Fiber Arts. A bunch of swatches called Evenstar. Too much for me, I though. Lace, never done it. Only been knitting six weeks. But then I got onto Ravelry and was caught in the net. This is a shawl, a mystery project where we don’t know what we’re going to do next. We get our first clue on Friday. I won’t be able to do much this weekend, because of Life, the Universe, and Everything at BYU (more on that later). So, I went back to Three Wishes and got me some lace weight yarn, in eggplant. Beautiful.
So yesterday was day one, casting on the swatch: I’m insane. Just what was I thinking? I cast on the swatch 2 times, and I am only now learning yo and ssk. So I’ve just undone my second cast on and part of the first row. And there are more decreasing/increasing stitches to come!
Still, I’m learning. How to make an even cast on with such a small weight and how to do those other stitches. I was here just six weeks ago with my very first casting on. Oh yeah. Did I mention I was insane?
