Hurricane Plans


My plans for this weekend's hurricane involve finally (stop laughing!) writing out the pattern for the oft-promised gray lace stockings. After a few hours of digging I found the original scribbled notes that got lost in the complete disaster I've gradually let happen while I fight with this accursed novel. I've been intending on doing a nice layout in a pdf file for easier downloading and printing, unless the power goes out and I'm sitting here for the next couple days in the dark listening to the wind blow.

The black lace ones have been put on the back burner for the moment because the cotton/wool blend yarn didn't have enough wool in it for stockings. I was trying to make some summer lace things, and thought I had the perfect yarn but it had absolutely no memory whatsoever. I'd try them on, they'd stretch a little, and after maybe four times of briefly trying them on they'd grown large enough for me to but both legs into. There was no point in writing out the pattern and saying, "Hey, use better yarn, OK?" Yeah, that would've been an awesome pattern.

I think I can get a little design work going on some things I've had ideas for but haven't had the time to work on. I'm not in a novel-writing mood today so I might dust off the knitting needles and pick the cat hair off some yarn. Lots and lots of cat hair.
