Friday Unread Updates

It seems that the entire blog-reading world goes away on Fridays, and doesn't return until Monday to catch up on missed blog entries.

Despite It All
Yes, brave heart that I am, I will still provide an update today.

Besides which, I couldn't justify having left you with that awful picture of the Promenade dans le FĂ´ret lace that I posted earlier this week.

Current Knitting
And yet, I find this color of yarn to be particularly difficult to photograph so that I can give the yarn a bit more contrast from its background. I'm blaming the camera and I won't listen to anyone who blames the photographer.

I've only added 9 more rounds since the last posting, but it seemed like more than that while I was doing it.

The nice part about knitting this design for the second time is that I haven't made any errors yet, which I definitely couldn't have said about my first attempt at this project.

Readers' Comments/Questions
Regarding my whining about laceweight yarns in manly colors, I was glad to get all your comments and suggestions. I love that Carol wrote, "Hey -- BBF laceweight comes in any color YOU want."

All I can say is that it's good to have friends in the knitting world!

You're probably right, but I would imagine Carol would have saved the name Good 'n Fruity for me, dontcha think? BTW, how do you like your Strauch drum carder? I love having mine, but I feel like it's somewhat wasted based on the amount of fleece I actually get to card.

Yep, I'm reading on a Friday, too.

It's lovely. I'm always hungry for knitting posts, so I'm glad you put it up! I haven't 'braved' much lace knitting yet, but you tempt me-- oh yes you do. Thanks for sharing.

Maybe your lace would show up better if you put white or a more neutral color behind it?

I am also out here, reading on a friday evening AND listening to the ball game...

Well, yea, I guess you got me on the name.
The drumcarder is still in it's box- I'm thinking I may not get to play until school starts- but there is some baby mohair and bunny just waiting for it. Sounds like we need to get you some more fleece...
