Thank you, thank you for all your well wishes and congratulations! I'm was totally floored by all of your comments. Wow!
It's been more than a week, and Sven didn't ask for the ring back (ha--good luck, buddy!), so I suppose that this whole wedding thing is really going to happen. I promise not to turn this blog into a wedding planning site. That would get boring for you, and more importantly, boring for me. You don't come here to read about the wedding, you come to read about the knitting.
Here's what I'm working on now. It's the Ooh La Lace Stole [Rav link] from Lace Style. I'm using Blue Sky Alpaca--the yarn specified in the pattern! Long time blog readers know that this almost never happens.
Here's another photo:
As you can see, I don't know how to take a good photo of this lace.
I am enjoying the knit so far, but it's slow going (like just about all of my knitting projects these days). I knit last week only at Spiders, and probably the same this week again. Why? How do you say "German is kicking my patootie this semester" auf Deutsch? It's an accelerated course, and man, it is sehr schlecht. It's funny, because I knew that the course was accelerated when I registered for the class, but the implications of the "accelerated" designation didn't register with me. It's a good workout for the brain, but it's so fast that it's almost not enjoyable.
Let's just hope that the German doesn't supplant the knitting math.
