Alright, so I have to tell you, knitting lace is much more difficult than I thought it would be! Not really because the techniques or stitches are new to me, but because knitting with #3 needles is difficult, especially if you are shaky! I think I need needles with a pointier tip, too. Oh, and did I tell you, all of these years I have been doing the knit stitch incorrectly?! I was reading the instructions for my stole when I came upon the instruction to "knit through the back of the loop." I thought to myself, "how is this any different than doing a knit stitch, because that's how you do it???" So I got on knittinghelp.com and learned the CORRECT way to knit a stitch, from THE FRONT of the loop! Dur! It's actually much easier to knit this way (as you all know) and could account for my snail-like knitting pace (I have been having trouble with k2tog and ssk, though).
Rachael of Not So Plain Jane did a nice post yesterday about things that make her happy that she is alive. This is a good exercise for anyone to do, but especially for those of us who really want to just stay under the covers until spring.
