That’s Logical

I’ve recently finished both Artesian and Follow Your Arrow 2.  I’m still knitting on Alys and the lace sections of the felted bowls (haven’t touched those since you last saw them).  I haven’t even started my other two Loopy Academy projects for this semester and I have several other WIP’s sitting around staring at me.  So what did I do last night?  Cast on something new of course!
This is the beginning of Big Damn Heroes, which is essentially a lace poncho.  It’s inspired by the dress Zoe wears at the end of Serenity (which is a seriously great dress, by the way).  I’m knitting it in Madelinetosh Pashmina in Smokestack, and I’m making the smaller size.  I’m knitting it from the charts (the ones that with the funny shapes, but that show how the lace pattern looks), which I’ve entered into KnitCompanion.  I definitely think KC is the way to go with this project, particularly if your cat likes to steal the correction tape from paper patterns, and run down the hall with it streaming behind him.  The lace patterns aren’t difficult, and I’m far enough into this that I can read my knitting and see what’s supposed to be happening.  Oh, and just for fun, I realized after I stuck the picture into this post that it looks like I’m knitting a lace toilet seat cozy.  We’re so classy around here, even the toilets wear lace!

OK, I’m going to go make some tea and get some caffeine into my bloodstream now.
