I have finished knitting the garter but now have to wash and block it. I've never blocked lace before and am dawdling - gotta stop that.
I'm also playing with writing a new pattern. It's based on Mo Willem's Pigeon character.
Of course I'm in the throws of creating it right now - complete with knitting and frogging and re-writing my pattern as I go.
So far I am really woring on the butt to get the shape right.
