The lace and I aren't talking at the moment. I gave it all day yesterday, in between loads of laundry, to play nice. It refused. It is sulking in the bag and I am going to soothe myself with a holiday gift project. I'm not sure what the problem is but after trying for 2 days to get past the 6th row, I'm putting it aside for now. I actually started row 7 once but there is a quirky part where you p1 and k1 through a double yarn over down in row 2 and then drop the next stitch on the needle and when I did it, the whole thing unravelled in a most unattractive way. I must be doing something wrong.

Here is a photo of the yarn I bought myself for being a good dental patient. It's 1200 yds of merino and soft. I didn't have anything in mind when I bought it, I just liked it. I think that is a sign of a serious addiction. Usually, I buy yarn for a purpose, not just because it's beautiful.



The weather today is windy and sunny. I have been listening to the wind chimes outside my bedroom window for the last two hours. I love wind chimes and have two sets outside the house. I would love more but I like my neighbors and don't want to drive them crazy.


I'm off to shower and fix some breakfast and resume the washing of the winter clothes. I stopped at 8 last night and have 3 loads left for today. It takes so long because everything is heavy and bulky and takes up a lot of space in the washer.

Have a restful Sunday.

wow that blue is spectacular. I love a good, vibrant blue.

That row that you managed? Sounds like hell to me. Ugh.

I get stuck on rows sometimes. It took me an hour to get a row of my relatively simply lace right on the weekend. It's SO frustrating!

Too bad the lace wouldn't play nice, but that is some beautiful merino.

Sometimes things just need to be had because they are beautiful - I think it reminds us that there is more to the world than the mundane.
