Snow and Evenstar

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
The snow might slow business down, but it is beautiful – and I’m tired of drought! This might not break the drought but any moisture is welcome!

Since it’s snowing, and since I went through my WIPs yesterday, I’ve decided to make up with Evenstar.

It’s far too large to see the whole pattern. I’m working almost 600 stitches per round at this point (588 to be exact – if you’ve done Evenstar and this number sounds wrong, don’t tell me! I don’t think I could handle it!) and each round takes me between 30 and 1 hour. It varies based on how often I get distracted and how complicated the row is.
I’m half way through chart 3 – right at the spot that the stitch markers “dance” every-other row which slows me down a lot.

I use lifelines when I knit lace. Always. No exceptions ever. I use them because I’m a clutz (or is it klutz? Whatever). I pull needles out, unintentionally, often. I drop my knitting to answer phones. And I put things into timeout often; if I mark which row I put a lifeline in, I can find my place again easily. Lifelines make me happy.

    It is a Ravelry pattern but it is one that can be bought in store. It has been fun to work on! I’m getting anxious to finish it šŸ™‚
