Too Stupid To Count To 18

Yes, folks, I am too stupid ( distracted, worried, tired) to count to 18, and thus the new feather and fan stole ( f&f has a repeat of 18) has been ripped right out. (An aside: though I find the lame joke about frog/knitting/eg rip it, rip it to be a funny lame joke, I cannot bring myself to say that I ‘frogged‘ something.) Yes, I ripped it out. SO, I have a pair of brand new addi lace needles-( I like the knit picks ones more, actually, and considering that Knitpicks are about a third less expensive, that’s a good thing.) I have a brand new skein of Misti Alpaca laceweight, and I have a gauge swatch in feather and fan. I have decided to see how far 475 yards of laceweight goes in a dish cloth shawl. Started with one stitch in one corner and will increase one stitch per row until it’s almost gone. Any guesses on how big it will be?

  1. That’s why I think some lace patterns are easier than feather and fan: they repeat a lot faster. Barbara Walker’s little arrowhead lace is a lot more visually obvious as you go along, and no counting.
