Things are starting to settle down here. In two and a half weeks we move into our apartment and the movers should bring our things by July 20. Until then, I'm working my rotation again with the three pieces I have: College, Middle Earf, and Medieval Shelf, with College getting the most attention. I've never worked it in 10 hour rotations before and I'm playing catch-up with my "deadline" schedule (as seen on my left sidebar) so I can finish by Christmas. I'm liking it so far.

Stitching on 25 count antique white evenweave
1 thread over 1 with DMC
I read Theresa's blog at OctoberLace's Stitching and Knitting Notes and discovered something I never knew existed: knit lace. It's beautiful and I want to be able to do it. So I bought some yarn, found some patterns online, and have started practicing. Right now I'm on simple patterns, and I think it's going well. Keep in mind that I'm learning everything from the very beginning. I've been bookmarking youtube videos and reading websites and trying to expand my very minuscule knowledge. Once I feel confident enough in what I'm producing, I'll show you guys but for now, I'm focusing on getting better, and stitching of course!
How nerdy is it that I'm totally excited to be able to stitch my own doilies?
On to Middle Earf!
