knitting chalice lace

With a pattern that needs just 2 skeins, it's easy to calculate how big to make it. At the end of the first skein I'm halfway ... as long as I make sure I'm at the end of a repeat or in the middle. Nice to know that I can knit pretty much every yard of this beautiful yarn without worry.

The chalice lace looks complicated, but it's straightforward now that I'm a ways into it. Still, I have to keep a close eye on what row I'm working on. And I doubt I'd find my way if I were to put it aside for any length of time.

For the next couple of days I'm going to focus on this blanket. And then? Nothing new on the needles until I finish other projects. Like embroidering flowers on Clara's sundress. And weaving in ends on my Taiga sweater.
