the migraine's mostly gone, kyoto's 99.9% finished (i want to steam block the collar now that it's stitched on to get it to lay flat), and i'm on the 3rd repeat of lelah's fishtail lace pattern!

did i mention i frogged lelah AGAIN? because once i learned i was doing twisted knit stitches, i realized why the YOs weren't appearing as holey as one would wish. so they say 3rd time's a charm, and i have started it the third time and made it (for the first time of 3) past the 2nd repeat. it looks MUCH better than it did before! there is one lelah in her gallery that has straps, which is ultimately my plan, but i don't think i'm going to make straps like the one in the gallery... i think it will involve i-cords, however.

it's summer, though, so i am going outside. and knitting. even though i have to write a paper on rabbit fever.

Rabbit fever? Is that what makes a normal rabbit turn into a striped, watermelon-eating jackelope?? Because I have seen such a creature. --Lilac, aka, Yayme

silly yayms, of COURSE that's why they're stripey and watermelon-noshing!

i was twisting stitches for a long time before i figured it out too. lelah is a cute pattern. i wonder if it would withstand my ginormous mama chest.

well, if you read the lelah patterns, she writes, "i got me some big bazoongas," which i have as well, so i would hazard a guess and say yes. but i'm putting straps on to prevent it from dropping about my ankles anyway.
