Stash Enhancement and a FO



Kristen and I needed to go to Long Beach to shop for shoes, so we took a side trip to Alamitos Bay Yarn Shop for a little stash enhancement. Came away with some lovely laceweight yarns and wooden cable needles.

aarrrgh!

Just when I thought I was on a roll, I had to frog back twice to fix messed up stitch counts. Luckily, my dental floss lifelines are helping. I managed to complete about 12 repeats without any known errors, but the last couple of days I've been frogging and tinking like crazy. Maybe I need to take a break from this pattern! Go back and work on the straight knitting of the triangular shawl.

Or maybe it's because I've been perusing the Walker stitch collection, and have my heart set on buying some merino and cashmere yarn and trying the Japanese feathers pattern in shawl width. Maybe.

I won't have earned the right to start that till I finish Branching Out! It's my lace boot camp! If I can finish this scarf, I will believe that I can knit any lace pattern (except ones that require you to p2togtbl or that require following a chart that fills several pages!)

Branching Out Again

Since the lace I'm knitting is called Branching Out, I thought I'd take a few pictures of the trees around my neighborhood.
