Well, Happy 2009! I've been busy getting back to work after 2 wks off and the adjustment is not going well. I did cast on for the Lace Dress by Shirley Paden from Vogue Knitting-Summer 2008. I've completed 10 rows so far. I just have to get used to looking at a chart while I knit. I'm using Plymouth Jeannee - worsted in light blue and started with the suggested needle SZ 8. I'm just gonna take my time with this.
Also, I found this pattern on Coats and Clark and will be casting on for this real soon in time for summer. I plan to use Plymouth Encore for this in color #7516. I LOVE this color and #7518. It'll take at least 14 or 15 skeins to finish. The pattern suggests a #6 and #7 needle so, I guess thats what I'll use. This will come in hand for some chilly summer nights.
And I am still working on the crochet blanket from Erika Knight's book, "Essential Crochet". Pray that I get this thing finished. It needs to be done before I kill myself or my boyfriend does.
