Intro to Laminaria

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I was on vacation for the whole week and I have to say it's the best time to do it. Gets you in gear to handle the remainder of the year and the long bout of cold months to come.

The family was in town for a quick visit and it was perfect, yet not long enough. Is it ever? Then the cooking began and much was consumed. It was then on Friday... the infamous Black Friday where I had no obligations, no commitments and enjoyed a lazy day of knitting in my pajamas. sigh.

It was on that day that I ripped the Citron out and cast on for Laminaria. I was hooked. Even more because I'm using my Signature needles which work this lace like nobodies business!

The pattern is fun and kinda addicting. Lace is really a big ball of bla while your knitting it, but if you stretch it out a bit you can see those cool star shapes.

I'm all kinds of excited about this.

In other knitting news I bound off for the Hills of Ireland and I think I need more yarn. I'm going to block the heck out of it and see where to go from there.
