Add Another One to the Finished Pile!

She's done! I finished it about 2 weeks ago, but I had to wait until my body healed up to block it. C-sections & blocking lace aren't two activities that should be done together! Even yesterday was pushing it, but I couldn't wait. I also can't wait to knit another one of Anne's designs. Look to the blog for more details.

Technical Question

I am about halfway through the Beehive section and am eyeing that center back provisional cast on with some trepidation.

I know that getting the graft just right will be critical to the success of this project. I think I'm going to go ahead and do the grafting now. If I totally mess it up, I will have "only" lost a few days of knitting time (all right, three weeks. But that's still better than months and a totally frogged project).

I'm looking for tips, techniques, pros and cons of doing the grafting now. Advice, please.

This is probably the most beautiful, complicated thing I've ever knit. I love it!

See my blog or Ravelry for more if you want!
Thanks to my husband for taking pictures outside when it
as 2 degrees thismorning:)

another knitalong

I received an email from a knitter who has started a knitalong for another Anne Hanson lace stole design, Simurgh. She asked if I would mention the knitalong here. If you're interested in joining, pop on over to her KAL blog and take a look. :)
