Getting Ready for Waterlilly

Monday?!?! Already?  I am fresh off a weekend of camping that included exactly one hour of knitting time.

Tears. So many tears.

But, the scenery was great. And little Reed had an awesome time. (Yes, I just started once sentence with but and the next with and.  I think that is a thing now.)

We camped at MacKerricher State Park in Ft. Bragg, California. I highly recommend! A long four hour drive for us but worth it! Husband was in charge of the itinerary, so I didn’t get to go to the Mendocino Yarn Shop.

Don’t even get me started.

I am not quite done with Dolores…still need to seam and block…and assess the over all outcome. Could be great. Could be mediocre. There are a few places in the lace where it is not quite perfect. Gulp. Plus: will it fit and flatter?

(Does anything ever fit and flatter? Ha!)

All the same, I am getting ramped up for Waterlily. The yarn is out! I had hoped to swatch over the weekend, but alas it didn’t quite happen. DSC_0018

I did buy and read the pattern…actually I had to buy the entire Pom Pom Spring 2014. I was happy to see there were a couple other patterns in the issue I would also love to make.

At this rate, they may have to wait until My Next Life. What do you think the odds are that I will be reincarnated as a knitter? I can only hope…

Once I cast on, it looks like straight knitting to the Latvian braid that marks the lace transition. No waist shaping. I am looking forward to some simple, brainless stockinette and major Netflix binging.
