Today, from 10:30 am until about a half an hour ago (4:30 pm) the power was out. We had received a nice little letter from the electric company about a week ago telling us that this was going to happen, so it wasn’t a total surprise. Still, it sucked. Luckily, the battery for the Mac held-up until it was nearly over so I was able to listen to podcasts while I was casting on the lace stole that I have started.
Lace weight yarn takes forever to wind on the ball winder.
It doesn’t look like much either before or after, but trust me, there is around 450 meters of yarn in one of these balls.
So I did a bunch of swatches of lace to decide how exactly I wanted to do this..
And today, while there was nothing to distract me, I cast-on.
My bags are more or less completely packed, weighed and ready to go. I just have to put the contents of my purse into the carry-on bag and I am ready to go.
Only 2 more days until I leave!!!!!
P.S. The new Twist Collective is out!!!!

ooh cute cute pictures.
Which pattern are you using? I’m totally in love with my Ishbel so far, although it sheds like our cats in late spring…
I just used a stitch pattern that I got during the class that I took at UK Ravelry day, not really using a pattern so to speak….
Can’t wait to see you!!! Love the lace – that’s gorgeous.
Have a great time.
