A meandering path through the crafts I follow, undoubtedly touching on other parts of life as well. My name's Elizabeth; I've a husband, two kids, two cats, and an abiding interest in fiber. Mostly this will be about fiber. And gardening, just because.

1.20 Approaching blobhood
The curse of the lace knitter: after the first 40 or 50 rows, lace items look like blobs. We wave them around and say things like "see, this bottom edge will actually be straight across when I'm done, and the pattern looks like 'this'" as we stretch a 10 cm square out over the palm of the hand. People nod and back away carefully.
