Rule #1: Never try to knit lace during a nail-biting football game. I ended up frogging a bunch and then realized that I probably didn’t need to frog in the first place – I had just slipped my marker over one. Sadly the Seahawks lost, but we’re happy they got as far as they did. Here’s to next year! And lest you think no knitting was accomplished:

I reached the halfway point on the lace edge of the Snowdrop shawl. I’m really pumped to be this close to the end, so I will probably work on this exclusively until it’s finished. This has been a fun project and I would highly recommend it as an introduction to lace knitting. It has enough repetition to be predictable and flows nicely. The lace edging is also a good introduction to a knitted on edge. For the free pattern, head on over to The Yarn Harlot.

And I also finished these:

Another pair of CIC socks. I made these in a larger size for older kids. I used some Cascade 220 left over from Rogue. This is one of four pair that will be donated in honor of the ladies in my quilting group.

  1. That’s a beautiful shawl, but there’s no way I could have made that while watching a Super Bow, with my team in it.

    While was was mildly pulling for the Steelers, I feel that the Seahawks should have won the game.
