It has taken a decade, but I found a lace pattern I can knit. THE COBWEB shawl by Emma Crew, is a free Ravelry pattern.
Aren't epiphanies amazing and fun?
I had a big skein of one tone lace yarn in my stash.
Someone of you sent me this at least a year ago, or perhaps it was in Meg's pile when she down stashed. Anyone? Was it you?
This yarn shows me the stitches clearly.
This free pattern involves no stitch markers.
If you want to try a lace pattern, this may be the one.
I got all domestic yesterday and tried a new recipe for Fireman's dinner. Enchilada lasagna got good reviews from him. If you want the recipe, send me an email.
Finally, my friend Sandy who we vacationed with, told me these coconut candies are like Mars Bars on Steroids. I'm not a coconut fan, but everyone who tries these makes those "this is soooo good" noises after the first bite.
So many of you mentioned being homesick on vacation; I thought I was the only adult with this issue. I think we are really blessed that we love our routines and our home life so much.
Bringing some new fun knitting always makes me feel like I'm a bit at home, and it helps me with that homesick feeling when it hits.
