As stated in a previous post, my progress has been somewhat sporadic due to being busier with life. I am not complaining at all. I will have all of this coming school year to myself and my hobbies. Anyways, the swallowtail shawl is working up quite nicely. The yarn is Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace and I am really enjoying working with it. There is not much sheen from the lace but I will wait until washing and blocking to make a final judgement. I have only four more repeats of the budding lace pattern and then I get to do the next chart! I really like that the designer included charts in the pattern. For some reason I assume I have the six row chart memorized and then always find a mistake.....so far I have not had to rip out rows yet.
Can you believe that my coffee maker has died this morning (thankfully after half heartedly brewing)? I have had this coffee maker for six years and have loved it so much that I went on Amazon and bought the EXACT same one. So for the time being, I will use my daughter's little maker tomorrow morning. For those of you wondering, it was a Cuisinart. Love it!!!
