a fresh start
That's the first shelf liner done. Three weeks from start to finish. Not bad, considering a couple of pairs of socks were knit through those same three weeks. What it means is that my plan to complete two more of these for the first week of November is completely do-able, from a scheduling point of view.
When I decided to move forward on my idea of knitting shelf liners I was a bit concerned that the knitting would become tedious. I was worried that I'd be dragging my feet through the second and third shelf liners. Not so. The lace pattern is just challenging enough to keep it fresh and interesting all the way through.
With this shelf liner and the last pair of socks off the needles, the beginning of the fall season offers a fresh start. The beginning of the TV season, the first day of the NHL preseason, the start of sweater weather and something new on the needles - it's all good ... until we see how badly the Leafs play.
