I'm a little more than 1/3 of the way through this first clue but not quite to the halfway point. I don't remember the last time I worked with laceweight yarn and it's been about two years (I think) since I've used beads. There are a lot of beads in this design and while I've only worked three rows with beads so far, they're definitely slowing me down. Also, Caleb must have felt a tremor in the force, because as soon as I started the first bead row, he wandered into the room and wanted to snuggle up and watch TV with me. Anyone who's ever been around a 10 year old boy knows you drop everything when they want to spend time with you and if they'll let you hug them (without making gagging noises and pretending to die), that's just that much more important. So the beads and the boy are making for some slow knitting, but I have two weeks between clues and it's not a race.
