So, that first year in Sunset Beach I learned to make hairpin lace and made several terrific boas. I discovered a great little yarn shop called Knitting Up A Storm which unfortunately is no longer there. It makes me very sad when a LYS closes. I feel I've some failed and not bought enough. I used a worsted weight, a sparkly and a hairy and held them together making fabulous boas. I also made one of these. . .
Our second year at Sunset Beach, I had learned my lesson from year one. I did not start my project for fear I would finish it before we left.
I unraveled it, rewound the balls and started over. I loved this pattern so much, I didn't even mind. It was perfect when it was done. It is one of the dangers of modular knitting--you never really know how it is going to fit until you are done. So, I really knit two things for Kathy that year.
The Rainbow Cardigan has led to plenty of this. . .
Oh, by the way, another knitting goal is to keep the Stash Studio in pristine condition so that any moment of any day I can invite knitters over to climb my stairway to heaven.
