Well, I need to work out my Lace Leaf/FBS frustrat…

Well, I need to work out my Lace Leaf/FBS frustration. Nothing like some fast and easy knits as therepy.

Angel’s Rest Sock…it’s been over a month on the FIRST sock. I finally turned the heel. I substituted a short row heel in the pattern and I was dismayed to realize that my heel had some “holiness” (and not in the blessed-by-the-Dali-Lama kind of way). *sigh* I guess my Fixation sock heels weren’t holey because of the elastic in the yarn. Oh well, I think I can go back and tighten up when I’m done. Besides, the Lorna’s Laces is knitting up in these great colorful stripes – so I can’t complain. Too much.

And introducing a new project! Mitered Squares are fun! I mean, what’s not to love? They’re easy, quick, fun, colorful and the overall project is modular…so I can knit squares when I feel like it and not feel the pressure of an UFO.
My inspiration was the Psychedelic Afghan I saw on Ann and Kay’s Blog. I mean, c’mon – with all those colors – who can resist? They’re like chips!

Phew. Well, after a few days of what I consider knitting “junk food” I think I’m gearing up to work on my LACE LEAF shawl again. “Attention all crew, lower parascope, pressurize the cabin and prepare to dive.”

    Time for “follow the leader”, you being the leader. I love the little squares…I will have to do some researching on those puppies.
