This is the largest project I have done to date with lace weight yarn. 2000yds. It has taken me 5 weeks to knit up 1000yds. That seems a bit ridiculous to me when I remember that I have knit sweaters that take over 1200yds within 3wks. Granted, I had to do a lot of frogging. I got to a certain point; had a stitch pattern in mind, and for the life of me, I could not make it work! I finally scrapped it and found a new one. Sometimes the yarn has most definite ideas of what it wants to be, and no amount of finagling on my part is going to make it work any other way. I think I wasted a week on that one; but once we got past it, it has been going fairly smoothly.
I think it will be beautiful when I am done. I sure hope so.
This is a special project. A special project for someone very dear to me.
I hope she likes it when it's done. Really likes it, not just says so likes it.
It's also meant to go in the book I'm working on. I figured a bit of a teaser would be okay. ;)
