And still knitting.

Recent Knitted Objects

Lest you begin to think I’ve forgotten how to operate yarn.

This is a quick and dirty post with pictures for entertainment purposes. I’m packing up and spending the weekend with family before leaving for an impromptu trip to one of my three favorite places in the world-the beach house in Rhode Island.

Sunset in RI

I haven’t been since our honeymoon nearly four years ago, making it the longest stint I have stayed away from the homeland without visitation. It replaces the 2 1/2 year hiatus while I was overseas and travel was pretty much not happening. How pathetic is that?

Nags Head

Thank you all for the kind words and knitty love. I have been taking the most popular advice of “get some rest”. Meanwhile, we’re officially moving into stage 2 of the process and the perpetual nausea is beginning to fade. Question: Why would nature make it so that a pregnant woman, needing to eat nutritious foods, wants to throw up at the sight and very pronounced smell of anything edible? Quirky.

Hand dyed something or other

Anyhow, I’ll be back in a week, but in the meantime I have a question for you.
The urge to knit lace is strong with us lately. I’ve been going through books and searching online and I can’t settle on anything at all. I suppose a tool like ravelry would be indispensible at a time like this, but at the moment no tengo access to the mythical beast.
So what about you? What has been your favorite shawl/other lace project to knit? What is your favorite laceweight-ish yarn to use? I’m thinking pale green or bright-like pink. (I don’t know what has gotten in to me with the last one either, I’ve never been much of a pink person. Suddenly, all I can think of is pink. This may be the culprit.) If you have a moment, leave a link to your own projects or items that are in your save pile in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s to a good weekend and if you’re the celebrating type, great 4th of July!
