I’m not sure slow and steady actually wins the race, but I’m getting there! In spite of being able to finish the hat decreases the other day, I am still not up to knitting lace—my concentration wanders. I know because I tried. That does not, however, stop me from making preparations. I know that I blogged awhile back about having Grandma’s crochet needles—the ones she always warned me about. Well, the beads for this shawl are smaller, and I didn’t have a tiny needle in my inherited ones that was not a somewhat tight fit. Since I’ve been spending time on the Internet and not knitting and beading, I ordered a smaller needle. A reviewer described using one of these to tuck single hairs back into her ethnic hairdo, I hope it will work. I’m sure Grandma will be relieved to know that it came with a safety cap!
We did drive out of town today for lunch and to buy a couple of items and run an errand to the courthouse. It was nice to be out on a pretty, sunny, non-windy day.
