Slow Poke

Faced with only a few inches of new lace to show after a weekend full of knitting. I'm resorting to desperate measures to find new ways to photograph the same project over and over. I don't think I've shown Bandit with the Kimono Shawl yet....

It's now around 25 inches in length, only 5 inches short of being a square!

I signed up this weekend for Blockbuster Online thinking that having more DVDs to watch as I knit will help me along on this project. It's been very hard finding motivation to knit even in laceweight merino when the weather has been in the 90s recently.

Awwwwww...isn't he cute? :)

That thing is so amazing. You must be the most patient person on the planet.

Oh, trust me Zoe, I'm not patient. Just stubborn, very stubborn. :)

Your Kimono Shawl is going to be so beautiful! For a long time mine seemed to be stuck at around 40 inches no matter how much I knit. Weird!

What yarn are you using? It's really lovely.

Thanks, Bonnie! Glad to hear I'm not the only one to see that the Kimono Shawl is a knitting blackhole in disguise.

I'm using Skacel Lace Weight Merino. I really love how yours turned out!!
