Only 200 more rows to go

It's very hard to see the colours, and hard to see the pattern as it is all scrunched up on the needles. I managed to find a decent circular needle -- on the floor, not near anything I might knit with it -- and progress is slow but steady. It's just so fiddly, this dang laceweight!

We were playing Scrabble last night, and the word "tied" was on the board. Stephen said, "ha, ha, is 'stied' a word? Like the pig was in its sty; it was stied." Just to be sure, we looked it up, and indeed to "sty" is a verb. Our actual paper dictionary gives a more full definition, which includes, as the 5th definition, "to live in or as in a sty." So, I am stied today. Must dig out from under the laundry and dishes, must go get some groceries, must unsty the place!

Rock on...


  1. Was playing Quiddler with two kids, i could have used this!

  2. At least the rows get shorter as you go, right? I'm doing a center-out square blanket and I'm worrying in advance about the endless long rows ahead of me.

    We've got a new word game: Bananagrams. Works well for players of different ages. Much fun.

  3. that's awesome! i am totally going to use sty as a verb from now on.

    good luck with the olympic knitting - it's looking good so far!

  4. wow- it's looking beautiful! i admire your gumption- wonderful!

  5. see how the non-knitter buys difficult lace weight stuff. but isn't it pretty! (well I'm thinking it's the kiwi wool-possum whatever it was. Gee I'll have to come visit and bring you some more when that's done.
