Lace Knitting and Other Projects

Originally uploaded by Catheaven.

Well it's been awhile since I've been able to sit down and actually blog. I've been busy with a multitude of projects.
I am trying to work on reducing my stash size. The Stash group on Ravelry is a great motivator for me. I've been working on lots of baby items, which i can't share just yet.

The big project that I have undertaken is the Moon Dance stole written by Melanie Gibbons. This is my first venture into chart reading. Let's just say that chart reading and I didn't get along so well initially. I had a lot of trouble trying to figure out just how my increases and decreases were going to happen. I emailed the designer and asked on ravelry how this is done. Responses were few and finally I just couldn't wait any longer. The best advice came from a friend of just knit it as it reads. So off I went and the rest is history. This pattern is pretty easy but the results are coming out beautiful. With this pattern I also learned how to use the provisional cast one. So easy!

I am enjoying this stole immensely and can't wait to get it finished.
