Wet, wet, wet

Here's the back field picture. Posted on the right day for once.

It's a bit grey and grim because it's been raining, off and on , for what seems like weeks. We have been spared the worst of the flooding and are quite snug here in the rural backwater.

Not much knitting - creeping along on the border of the "5S" for the second time. This is really so I can make sure that I write the pattern correctly - I'm hoping that even the beginner lace knitter will be able to tackle this.

Here's a picture of the "tab", which is one repeat of the edging pattern, followed by one row in contrasting yarn, followed by the beginning of the edging proper. This is so that you stand some chance of being able to graft the two ends together without losing your marbles.

That's about the lot for now. I have been knitting on the tedious "Anne" cardigan but it's a bit black hole - I'm knitting all the hours that there are in the day and the thing has not increased in size, in any way, shape or form.

Oh, the knitting black hole. So much fun. I wish you fortitude! At least your shawl is looking lovely and showing progress.
