I can only count up to 6 .....

I was working on Tilly most of the weekend. Between stitches markers, life lines, and the never ending counting I think I've got this lace thing figured out. Of course the down side is that since there are 6 stitches in each repeat I no longer have the ability to count past 6. On a positive note I don't feel the urge to burst into tears every time I think I've made a mistake. Now that is progress for sure. For those who need to know the yarn is shadows from knitpicks and the needles are the new knitpicks option needles. I have to say I love the cables on these needles. Think my Boyd needlemaster may end up on ebay shortly.
And this little lady bug was enjoying a sunny spot on my window sill Saturday morning when I can down to make some coffee. Making good use of W's bunny bubbles.

Sunday was rain, rain, and more rain so hubby and I decided to do some mall walking. We were walking by the toystore and heard a teen say, "Yo, look at the yo-yo. Yo" Too many yo's in one sentence so I started laughing. Yo, I'm still giggling over it.

good to know about the needles. I've been toying with the idea of trading "up" to knitpicks. I really dislike the boye cables.

Your lace work seems to be coming along quite nicely. I made my first lace shawl earlier this year, and thought I would never put myself through something like that again. But I was wrong, I've already started another! LOL It's a wonderful feeling of accomplishment and pride when you successfully complete such a challenging project. Well, it is for me anyway.

Thank you for visiting my blog. It's always a pleasure to have visitors.

Have a great day. :)
