As If I Didn't Have Enough To Keep Me Busy
And now one of the knitter guys from MWK sends out this link to an on-line knitting game.
Not Only That...
...but the instructions are in Japanese, so of course, it took me about 30 minutes to figure out this child's game, and of course, I couldn't stop until I had knitted 3 pages without error.
Men can be so evil.
I raced like a demon to try and finish up my current lace tablecloth and ended up getting to round 139.
Here's a picture with light in the background to try and show a little detail.
Now 9 rounds might not sound like a lot, but first of all, some of the rounds are now over 800 stitches around. Second, I made a mistake at one point which required me to unknit 792 stitches. All-in-all, I made a lot of progress (despite evil Japanese knitting games).
Jane (AKA LaceFreak) writes, "Great choice for a first Niebling! Do you know what yarn you will use? Or will you knit it with thread/cord?"
I'm choosing between these two yarns.
The one on the left is a nice soft merino laceweight in a taupe color that is rich and lovely. The one on the left is a ton of some laceweight yarn I picked up somewhere, but I have no idea what it is. It feels/looks like hemp and silk, but I honestly have no idea. I'll have to look back through blog entries to see when I got it, and what it is.
Whatever I decide to use, I hope I get to start it next week sometime.
