So I spent a couple of late evenings with the lace on this and found myself almost through Week 5’s goal. Isn’t the honeybee or “moth” stitch beautiful?
To help pace myself, I cast on for another Lady Bat top in the Willow colorway. This one is for me. I’m not sure if it’s very wise to alternate between lace projects and not have something stockinette to come back to, but that’s what I’m doing while I still have muscle memory of the tension I used to make my daughter’s Lady Bat. That sounds silly, but it took me a while to get it right on the left leaning lace and I don’t want to have to do that over again.
I’m also starting a second summer sweater because there are only so many days of summer left and I have a queue to think about. There’s Just Beachy because I have a really great two-tone khaki color combo for it, Riverine Pullover because Andi Satterlund designs incredible things and I can’t believe I’ve never knit one yet, a Work + Shelter Lace Striped Sweater because my Ravelry friends are killing me with all of their excellent versions of this, the Reef Knot Tank because of reasons explained here, plus a real “Sweater” sweater for the Summer Sweater Knitalong. I can’t be dilly-dallying around here. I just typed dilly-dallying. Sigh.
Please ignore me and tell me what you’re wanting to knit before your summer ends.
