…my Master Knitter Level 2 submission results! It’s been about 3 weeks now, so I have about 3 to 5 weeks wait left. I’ve been trying to keep my mind off of it as best as I can. I started a lace shawl right away, and I finished it about a week ago:
Yarn: Nightfall Fingering shawl ball in Robin’s Egg
Needles: US 4
Started: Jan 17, 2013
Finished: Feb 2, 2013
Finished size: 24 inches high and 51 inches wide
I did the called for 14 repeats of the budding lace chart, but wanted more of the lily of the valley than just two repeats, so I did 4 total repeats of that. I worked the first and second chart, and then repeated the first and second chart (starting the first chart at row 3). It meant that I had the wrong number of stitches for starting the edging chart – I was off by 4 too many stitches on each side. I added a decrease on each side of the triangles on the first row of the edging, and in between the paired yarnovers on row 3 at the edges of the triangles- this made my stitch counts work for the edging.
I ended up running out of yarn with just 2 rows and the bind off left (oops!), so I doubled up some black cobweb lace yarn I had for those few rows.
I also got around to blocking my sock scrap blankie that I finished oh so long ago:
It blocked out to a really nice size! (And in blocking I discovered a hole made by Gracie the yarn-fiend kitty! Ack! I was able to repair it, but I am not a proficient crocheter, so it was a difficult thing!)
My current WiP is a pair of socks that had been hibernating for a while:
They are now almost done. I think I might pull out my Nightingale socks to finish next.
Happy Knitting! (And waiting…)
