Arrgh! Still not much knitting progress, but I managed to take a photo of my Leaf Loop cowl, it's been worn a bit, so looks a bit curly at the top!
A very easy leaf lace pattern, if I didn't have so many other patterns to knit up I'd knit another one. The yarn is not my usual soft as butter for next to skin wear. It's Countess Ablaze Lord Longwool DK, which (according to ravelry, as I don't have the label here) is Wensleydale. But it's not too scratchy, actually. I have far more trouble with Kid Silk Haze! I see it's now discontinued, but I have another skein in stash. It would make fine mittens, or a lace shoulder shawl too.
I've stuck with my monogamous knitting. I am FED UP with Integrali now. That might be becasue I've had to re-knit it! Yes, re-knit! I had a few dropped sts in the garter stitch section, had picked them up but wasn't happy with the ladder. The more I knitted the more I worried about whether blocking would even it up. In the end I pulled it off the needles and started again. I maaged to knit the whole of the main section in a day and a half. Not bad! The only problem is that I dislike frogging, so just cast on with the outer yarn end from the centre pull ball. And managed to get the whole lot into a tangle. So I've lost about 9g of yarn (ended up just cutting it). I've knitted 20 repaeats, but would have knitted 21 if I hadn't had to lose 9g.
This is now the final bit, knitting the lace edging on the other side of the shawl. Surely this will only take a few 3evenings...
