All we need is just a little patience…

Anyone else groove to GNR? 

Patience.  It takes more than a little to do lace.  I knit.  I frog.  I count.  I frog.  I knit.  I count.  Not necessarily in that order, over and over again, and we’re all of about 50 rows into the lace that cannot be shown here, but is on Ravelry.  (Gee, that’s a hint, huh?  Not for a knitting friend…) 

So, I require a sanity project, which I can pick up and clickity clack through after the lace has tested my patience.  My new favorite easy-peasy is the Doily Cloth, and here’s the start of #2.  Since I can’t find 10 inch, #5 or #6 dpns, I’m trying it on two circs this time.

Also, here are a couple of shots of the gorgeous Alpaca Sox yarn Anne picked up for me on Wednesday.  Yum!!  Can’t wait to knit with it, and of course, it’ll be socks.  I’d not seen it in person before it became mine, but it’s so soft, so very soft.  I’m really looking forward to picking a pattern and creating socks with this yarn.  Thanks, Anne!

One last thing…  Amanda’s doing her part to boost the economy, and my personal spending.  Free shipping!  Go, go, GO to her Etsy store!

    Oh Chan – I hear your lace pain. Mine is slowly growing and I can only work on it early on weekend mornings when the dogs are in a food induced coma and hubby is still sleeping. Otherwise the tv is loud, the dogs want attention and the hubby tries to have a conversation! Puhleeze – I may have it finished by the end of next year – thankfuly, it’s only for me 🙂 g

    Oh…lace. lovely, confounding, exasperating lace!! But the finished object is worth it. That pattern is lovely. You will love branching out. it is not frustrating once you’re into it.

    I love knitting lace but yo definitely need more than Patience and time to do it and that is why most of my lace knitting is on the back burner for the time being

    That looks decidedly brighter in the sun like that 😮 Is it tooooo bright for you??

    And Sharon explained the non-profit vs charity thing pretty well LOL I feel bad when you put the firehouse in non-profit. It’s not that I meant they’re not worthwhile and that it’s good to donate time or money, it’s just different than a charity – like with my professional organization. They’re not for profit, but that doesn’t really mean they’re doing anything to help some particular group of folks who need it.

    OK I give up LOL
