I love the idea of feathery, fine lace, but my brain is opposed to the actual knitting of it. Feather and Fan I can do, especially in worsted weight yarn I love like Noro. After scouring Ravelry and blogs, it boiled down to two projects for remedial lace knitting. Forest Canopy or Adamas.
I decided to go with sock yarn and a size 6 needle. So far so good. I may be a fool, but I have no life line. I love the way the pattern makes hearts! I was looking for a tone on tone Noro sock yarn to try, but settled on the Cascade Heritage. It is a ball that never ends!
My time has been taken up with big sistah visiting from Tacoma for her annual 2 month visit. She returns to Tacoma Saturday. I like to keep lunch open, heh, cuz it's all about food!
I've applied for a call-in job with the Navy (no I didn't join up). I am wading through books of paper and documentation for credentialing and security clearance. And, oh joy oh joy, I have to re certify my Advanced Life Support. This is one of those things I have a mental block against. I have certified twice, but always let it expire and have to take it again. So now I have to study:(. I get to use my fax machine. Once of those modern marvels and pieces of technology that somehow just makes me happy!
Speaking of technology, I've traded my WII for a PS3. Basically I wanted a BluRay player, but this one plays games as well. According to the Lancaster (son and expert tech support) though, I need HDMI cables and a smarter surge protector, one that shuts down at low energy levels. I now have 4 remotes so a Master Remote is on the list. It never ends.
But then, I digress.
The latest class I took was Basic Stamping at Bead It in Kaimuki. I had taken this before, but my stamping was never to my liking. The bottom line is that it takes practice. So, I've practiced on some cell phone charms.
I've managed a few more stitch markers. I just love the colorful beads!
