I've been working on something for a long time but just never blogged about it. It's something I've been working on for about a year.
The layman's term is "Rock Island" but I have been referring to it as "The Lacecide Pact." Why? Because three of us in Hooks and Needles decided to start this together. The first meeting, we were literally in tears over the pattern. I think I knit the first repeat of the first chart 6 times before I was confident that I got it right.
Oh, and did I mention that you knit that first chart 71 times? What!? Ain't no one got time for that.
Except I do, apparently. I hit my 50th repeat today, a little over a year after I started. If I make this my only long-term project, I might even finish it this year!
It doesn't look like a shawl. It looks like a very long centipede.
I'm not sure if my friends have been working on their versions, I lost touch with one and the other is in grad school (and, I love her, but she has serial startitis) so our KAL might have turned into a KAL of one.
So, phew, my secret is out! I'm sure everyone has projects that they just don't blog about. Right now, though, I only have this shawl and my hat. And my carpal tunnel, which keeps me from knitting too fast.
Have a great week!
