Phew. Dorothy and Emma patterns are now completed and posted on Ravelry and Patternfish. I do always underestimate the time it takes for this work. I believe it could go on and on for as long as I let it since I obsess and wordsmith endlessly. But no matter, a little obsessing is probably a good thing when it comes to all this math and writing.
And in between my episodes of obsession I got to work on my next piece – the brainstorming part anyway, and lace research. Doing so, I quickly got clearer on what I didn't want – not willing to turn my most fun activity into a mind bending count down or rip out session due to a too complex stitch/row repeat. After my most happy experiences with Dorothy and Emma I now know lace knitting doesn't have to be that. So after lots of looking and multiple swatches, decision made –
THIS! – but in a different color, with some delightful garter or seed stitch trimming, more than I've used in my prior two... And I think I'll work the trim in a second color. The sleeves will be longer but not too long, so will the hem. I'll change up the neckline as well. Intrigued? Hope so.
