44 Lace Repeats On A Dead Knitter’s Chest

 I have packed myself into an alternate reality, in which normal life does not exist. I have worn out several triple A batteries, listening to podcast after podcast—incidentally, there should be some podcasty reviewness going up this Monday, so y’all can look forward to some enthusiastic recommendations—and I have finished it.

 No, I haven’t finished the wrap. But I have finished my very first, 44 row repeat.

 And that’s huge for me.

lace by you.

 I was close to tears and a knitter on Ravelry looked at my picture  (a different one than this) and said, “Looks like you’re on row 15.”

 Somehow, she was able to tell what row I was on, when even I couldn’t tell where I was. And she was right. And somehow, as I am downloading more knitting podcasts and I have some fresh batteries…

 I think I’m going to get in some serious knitting.

    I found myself singing your title to the tune of “99 bottles of beer on the wall.” Try it. It works.

    Lovely work. You’re a gifted knitter.

    44 is a big repeat! You’ll learn to read your knitting, and know exactly where you are after a project like this.

    I tagged you for a meme on my blog today; come check it out!
