ISE3 update

repeated post from the ISE3 page forgiveness for my laziness :)

i have reviewd my pal's questionnaire and i believe that some of my stash yarn is a perfect fit! who knew! i've read her blog, i've commented, i've emailed, and i am off.
wanna see the progress so far?



i'm knitting branching out. from knitty, but i decided i didn't like the lace being assymetrical so i'm knitting it in two pieces and i'll graft it later. (hence the icky grey yarn at the bottom) the yarn is a ball of annonymous purple mohair i found in my stash. i never knew what i was going to do with it before now. yippee! and i even think my pal will like this. at least i hope so :)
i'm having a lot of fun but i've never knit lace (with laceweight yarn) before so i'm kind of scared. cross your fingers. i'm 3 repeats in so far i thought i'd do a couple more and put in a lifeline.
adventurous yes.
stupid. no :)

edit:
ok i'm officially having too much fun!!!

7 repeats into the pattern on both sides...
about 10 inches unblocked per side so 20 inches total so far!
woo hoo!
i think i have to quit for the night though more tomorrow! and i may even have enough yarn leftover for a lace cap. how coool would that be??? but i'd have to figure out a way to figure out the head size secretly...or just ask. hmm. thinking. but thats putting the carriage before the horse. 14 more repeats per side and i think i'm done. if the yarn lasts that long then we shall see :)

edit 2:
psst... i'm up to 9 repeats on each side. wheee... i'd still be knitting but i'm too ervous for my interview. don't corss fingers or anything its only starbucks but still. work is work.
