Busy Saturday!

About the addi lace- I do have one already, some of you may recall my bird nest scarf, which I knit with the addi lace 47" us6. I have just been waiting (a long while!) for the size us1 and us2. the us1 (47") is to try and knit magic loop. I really love these needles and have been knitting this lace scarf with the 47" us6 even though its not the proper size...
I have picked the yarn (Austermann's Step in a lovely colorway) for my sockapalooza pal, still not sure about the pattern, but I am on the short list!
Got my pal for KTS, and I am having fun trying different teas for my swap pal. (Its ok. This is not a secret swap.)
And finished the Regia-Bamboo socks for my son (24/lost/CSI). Now I can knit more on my Brooke’s Column of Leaves lace. I am actually enjoying this lace project. I loved the bird nest scarf. I may become a lace knitter... When you "get" the pattern, and have nice needles- it flows!

The lace scarfs look beautiful. I still haven't tried knitting lace, but I'm very tempted :-)

Lace knitting is a bit like knitting socks- it gets under your skin I think. The comment about 'getting the pattern'is the key! Until you 'get it' grrrr......

That was busy. The fastest sock-knitter I know! Lace is so great. Rewarding! And good needles seems to be a good investment.
Take care!

Just be warned, lace is addictive. Seriously addictive. As I know to my cost (specifically my sore arms). I am looking forward to the arrival of my own lace Addis!

You are such an avid knitter and blogger - I have fallen far behind - wanted to tell you that I am coming to NY for work June 18-21 - will have June 19 to do a little bit of sightseeing (I've got recommendatons for the Point and Purl Soho) Any suggestions for me?

What do you mean "you may become" you already are! I mean you have the needles and everything.

I'd definately say you've been bitten by the lace bug! The leafy lace scarf is looking very yummy and I love the socks (and totally agree you need some mindless knitting for Lost, etc!) I love the idea of the swatch blanket - there were some fantastic looking swatches there btw. Even with your internet problems you're a real speedy blogger - great photos as usual!

I think you're well on the way to becoming a lace knitter already. You've been so busy lately - all your projects look lovely.
