Ordinarily I'm not consumed with progress, especially if I'm enjoying the knitting as much as I'm enjoying this one; the Lilac Leaf Shawl from "Knitted Lace of Estonia".
One cannot, however, keep from looking at patterns for the future and my eyes kept returning to another pattern from that book, Miralda's Shawl, thinking perhaps I would knit it for Mother a Christmas gift.
A knitalong is starting for Miralda on March 1! Ooohhh. That would be fun, wouldn't it?
I can't imagine getting this one done by then and won't even try such madness, besides Miralda is knit on larger needles so I could have them both going!
I did take time today to finally finish a bag I started a long time ago. I'm not crazy about it, but it is done and I won't have to see that pieced front mocking me every time I pass by it.
