I'm hanging out tonight in front of the t.v., watching the Cardinals and knitting some more on my Kailyard Shawl. I am so enjoying the four plain rounds, but before the night is over, I'll be back on the charts.
The shawl is now at 512 stitches. I've added stitch markers every 8 stitches for the repeat. I think I may have used almost every little stitch marker I have and a couple of big ones to mark off the repeats.
I normally am not this careful with a knit, but with all these stitches and in lace and lace weight yarns, I am not taking any chances. I've battened down the stitches on my needle with a couple of point protectors.
And after a row of two of the new lace chart, I think I'll throw in a life line, just for good measure. Earlier this week, when knitting on the Bumble Bees chart, I found a couple of dropped stitches. I pulled them up successfully, but I'm not taking any chances.
On tap for tomorrow is a wedding, which means I'll be missing Saturday morning knitting with the Knit Wits, but, I'll enjoy not having to go anywhere until in later day. Perhaps, I'll get a couple of new repeats done on Kailyard then.
Stay cool this weekend if you are in Central Illinois.
