I've gotten 3 full repeats completed, (about 14 inches by 12 inches wide, when gently stretched; ½ of the first, (of 3) balls of yarn knit. I now know the pattern by heart—and well, once that happens: Boring!
The sock have 4 ½ l repeats of their lace done.. (about 5 inches) but they're socks! I am almost done with the leg (and will be turning the heel soon) and then well they are done!
Just when a stitch pattern begins to get boring with a pair of socks, you're done with the pattern (for a while) and get to turn the heel. The foot is just half pattern work, and with a few more repeats, the end is in sight.
Scarves.. (and I do like long scarves!) go on forever with no change. Still the pattern is a a very pretty one knit up.
On my mind to knit, (and I've already checked the gauge, and have begun to do the math) is a simple cowl for a Christmas present, and a shrug for myself. And some hats.. (Hats? Again with the hats? Yes again with hats!)
Behind the scenes, I am doing something I've talked about, but have procrastinated doing.
Part one is going through my blog, finding all the free patterns I published here, fine tuning them, turning them all into PDF's, and adding them to my Ravelry Store.
Part two is going through my files (some were zipped, and I needed to get an unzipper program to see them) and doing the same with a number of other patterns.. These are patterns I've written in the past few years, with no particular purpose. These, too, will become PDF's and go into my Ravelry store.
Part three is setting up a pattern store page here on my blog, with links to the Ravelry store--
Blogger is not too supportive of tables, so a bit of code writing is involved (I know just enough HTML to make it happen!) But part 3 can't happen till parts one and two are completed
Part four is editing and formating a third set of patterns—these I want to publish as a book—they are patterns with a unifying theme. I think success with parts one, two and three will be instrumental in making part four happen!
