Pink Doily

Ok, so I enjoy making lace, especially doilies.  Here is a pink one that I am working on, one that is coming along slowly.  The picture in the pattern I am using shows a blue doily, but I chose pink for it and am happy with that color.

New Post, New Job, Same Unwashed Knitter

I see that it has been a while since I have posted anything here, so I will do something to correct that now.

It has been a busy year so far, very busy.  I have begun a new job, at a new location, this time in downtown Seattle, which means, BAM! I am a commuter again.  But I like to ride our lovely Light Rail train into downtown Seattle, so it works out well and offers me a free half hour to knit or something.

My family has been out and about a lot this year so far, and all of it without me.  My mother, my brother and my brother's girlfriend all packed up and took a trip to Italy in February, at the time I was beginning my new job, so I could not go with them (I didn't have a passport or any money for traveling anyway).  They returned safely and stayed at home a whole two weeks or so, and then went off, along with the girlfriend's mother, for their SECOND trip to Hawaii without me.  They haven't even sat down with me and shown me much of the pictures they claim to have taken during their trips.  Oh well, perhaps I will just have to bug them for it.

Meanwhile I stayed here and worked, and knit, and crocheted.  I am making a beautiful pink doily, picture soon forthcoming, and a white doily.  I am working on a crochet sock pattern, but it is not going well, so probably no picture of that.

I need to make more lace.
