*pseudo-commitment ...

sometimes i can't sleep ... as was the case this morning. i stopped fighting it and finally got up at 4am. i had lots on my mind, including yarn and knitting (duh!). i have been craving a shawl to knit, thinking it could be my mindless knitting project. we all know, lots of little stitches in lace isn't exactly mindless. but, i think this shawl can sort of fit the bill ... it's icarus from the summer issue of interweave. it seems to have a good bit of mindless knitting until the end. i'm hoping my ksh is appropriate for the shawl. i would had swatched it already this morning if i had some size 3 bamboo circs. though i do have a key to my LYS (employee), i didn't think it would be cool to be found by security in my pj's and headlamp in the predawn hours.

in the meantime, i will keep crocheting cotton ... waiting to get my hands on those needles!

*pseudo ... or should i use my lorna's laces helen's lace ?!

i drive myself crazy sometimes.

I know that feeling of indecision, it can really drive you crazy if you overthink it. I guess the best thing is to think aobut what kind of look you want for the shawl, if you want a solid or variegated, maybe swatch both yarns and see which one you like. Seems logical, right?

I am really happy with the LL that I used on my shawl, it was a little splitty, but nothing horrible. I can't wait to see yours!
