Thank you everyone! For giving me encouragement and support to Lelah. :) Most appreciated. And Agnes, you asked where I am in the photos? Well just look for Ms Specky. :) Just a short update on Lelah. I've frogged the boob tube and left the laces alone for now. I've decided to go slow and easy. I cut it down to 132 stitches and then did an increase 4 rows up to add another inch. It's a play by ear situation. I think I'll string a life line through midway and pull out my circs (too short to go around me) and try it on first.
As for the rest, hardly worth talking about, I manage to justified to myself another project start up once I finished Lelah. I need something to knit in the car. It just helps soothe my temper and something to do while in the jam. I think the girls who have been in my car can testify to the hurl of words and rhythm of my drive rant..:D So....something that doesn't require concentration like lace means stockinette stitches. Hence, my swatch.
Now I have said before that I wasn't impressed with Jaeger Trinity but I must say, it feels and looks nicer as a swatch than a ball. Good sign. Phildar babydoll, here I come!
And since this post is already so full of orange goodness, I'll throw in a picture of Kiri as well.
It has grown a little since. I've switched to circs cause it's getting too big for straights. So big I can't spread it out, so I'm only showing half the shawl here. The pen is there as a gauge. I better get back to it soon before I forget how the pattern goes.
