In between celebrations, I've been working on a Secret Pal project. This is a first...working on a project during the exchange that my Pal has sent.
First, I did some research (because that's what I do) and found some better photos of what a finished Cozy looks like. Then I worked to knit up the first skein to see if there would be enough yarn.
Notice the white paper. The printed instructions were a bit small for my eyes so I "blew up" the 8 row repeat instructions. (Signs that I must be aging...in case we needed some.)
I've finished the first skein (yes, there won't be a problem having enough yarn). As of tonight I'm midway through the second (of four) balls of yarn. Unfortunately, I've discovered an error was made near the end of the first ball. I refuse to go back now and fix it. I'll know it's there, but the world in general won't. It's lace, I can live with error. Another first.
Note: I know about lifelines, but decided that since this was a small pattern not to use one. Hopefully that won't be another error.
