You might think that I don't like knitting this lace shawl, considering how long it's been on the needles, and how often I say I'm going to work on it and don't. Not true. It's a very nice shawl to knit. But as I work towards the last dozen rows, each row gets longer - a row takes about 20 minutes now. Not the best project to pick up for a few minutes and then put down. And I still have to pay close attention to each and every stitch within the lace pattern to keep from going wrong - not easy to pick up after a long absence and sort out where you left off.
But isn't that what makes it challenging and interesting? Very different than knitting dishcloths! With a few free hours yesterday I was able to work to the end of the 24th row of the 33 row River of Life Edging. Nearly finished. Nearly.
