Knitting, Lace Leaf KAL, Weather

Daffodills & Lace Leaf Progress

We’ve had a number of rather severe thunderstorms this week, with high winds, lightening, lots of thunder of course, and even hail!

  

But my daffodills are holding up remarkably well so far!  

  

We have a whole long row of them between the two properties, next to the grapevines. 

  

Some of them are looking a bit droopy, but they will perk back up! 

  

And honestly, I was surprised to find them still all in one lovely piece! 

  

That row of daffodills is one of my favorite things about Spring around here!

  

And of course there are a couple of hyacinths mixed in as well! 😉 They smell absolutely heavenly!

Stormy weather is also good knitting weather, particularly if the power goes out (because electronics are optional, all you need is a flashlight or a candle or two and you can keep right on knitting!), which it didn’t this time, for which I’m grateful because it’s still a bit chilly around here.

  

I’ve been working on my Lace Leaf Shawl, and enjoying it very much!

  

I’ve made it through repeat number eight now, and had to get a longer cable in order to spread it out flat! 

  

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend with lots of the things you love best!

  

Knitting, Lace Leaf KAL

Ready!…Set!…

Today is an exciting day, folks! You all know what I mean…! Not only is it the last day of March, it’s also Lace Leaf KAL Eve!

Are you excited? I know I am!

Today I’m making final preparations before the KAL begins tomorrow. For me, that means I’m doing things like:

Reading my Lace Leaf pattern through one more time, to be sure there isn’t something I missed… 

Winding my yarn into balls…     

Laying out my needles… 

And setting up my project on Ravelry!

In fact, would all of you fellow KALers set up your Lace Leaf KAL project on Ravelry and then select the option to “share” it with our Lace Leaf KAL group please? That way, we can all share, see, and enjoy each other’s work as the KAL progresses!

Once your project is set up, all you need to do to share your project with our KAL group, is to go under Groups (right hand side of your project page), click on the “Share with a group” drop down box, and select our Lace Leaf KAL from the list, as shown below:

What are you all doing to get ready for tomorrow? Feel free to share your favorite KAL prep tips!

Happy Lace Leaf KAL Eve, Everybody! See you tomorrow!

P.S. If you haven’t signed on to do the Lace Leaf KAL yet, but would like to, you are more than welcome to join us! Just join our group on Ravelry; then decide whether you want to knit the Blackthorn Shawl pattern, or the Lace Leaf Shawl pattern!
