I Should be Cleaning

I should be cleaning for Pesach but the day is so beautiful that I just had to get some pictures in the sun.

I'm on the last 8 or so rows of Legolas. Almost ready to add the leaf tips.

Here's a picture of my Evenstar circular lace shawl. In about 13 rounds, when I switch to a longer cable I will pin it out so you can see the design. This is my first project in lace weight yarn and my first circular shawl. I'm so excited it's turning out so well! Sometimes I amaze myself.

Speaking of amazing myself:

Yeah, I spun that. About 56 yards, 2 ply, light worsted weight. I still have a few more grams of fiber to spin up and ply. Can't wait to see what my final yardage is. I might make myself a pair of lacy fingerless mitts or a cowl, dunno yet.

I feel like the crocheting has been my sanity in the middle of everything..

Don't feel guilty.. enjoy it to invigorate yourself to keep on going!

If you make lacy fingerless mitts, I found a bitchin pattern the other day... It's someplace in the murky bog that is my queue.
