infinity continued



Knitting on the infinity loop stopped for a week or more while I was busy with a deadline....
So, when I picked up the loop I couldn't remember what stitch pattern I had used on the lace edging.

By the way, I did add the aqua/purple saturated Colinette Jitterbug to the mix. Gay said I should, and that's all I needed to go for it. I'm glad I did because for some reason all the reds and purples were depressing me. I might be too sensitive to color but anyway I feel better now that there's aqua in there.

I spent a long time reverse engineering the lace pattern. It's not complicated, but I was tired. Eventually, I figured it out and at that same moment remembered the source pattern book. I consoled myself by telling myself that now, I would never forget the stitch pattern. yeah right. Save Time, Take Notes!

One more confession, when I cast on for this project I did not count my stitches. Crazy? Yes.
Since the stitches go around both ends, knitting the lace edging is taking FOREVER. It literally feels like infinity. I tried to count the stitches but there were too many...

The aqua really does change the tone...in a good way....and as for taking notes...well I sometimes can't interpret my own when I go back and look at the scribbles I made!

And, uh, how are WE going to make this pattern then??!!!! You have to count the stitches, and write this pattern for us!! HA! Please! I love this. The aqua is really a brightener.

aqua and Gay save the day! you are really good with color but so is Gay - this looks so pretty.

you sound like you're in the middle of 'oh man this project is such a grunt' - i always get there and yet i'm pretty sure you will love this once it's done. i love it already. of course i'm not on the infinity of stitches.

i love the colors. the purples go from top to bottom and really tie in all the other colors. they flow nicely and another way to look at it is that now it is reversible. depending on what you have on or what mood you are in you can have a different color closer to your face or whoevers face this will be on!

Wow, I love all these colors. I'm not sure I'd have the patience for this but it's beautiful!

I'm in love with all these colors! I would love to see it in person (hint)! ;)

Thanks for all the encouraging comments! The end is in sight. I'm guessing there are less than a hundred stitches left to go. When it's all finished, I'll count the stitches. It won't be too hard once the edging is finished.
