Lunar Progression…

Blocking. It’s necessary.

Wow, this is my first post for May. My, my….I have let things slip.

I felt like I was stuck in a never ending cycle of lace knitting. It wasn’t even a hard lace pattern…I mean, I had the 2 row repeat memorized. It’s pretty much the only thing that all the grey matter in my skull is good for these days. Hey, it’s something!

It felt like it went on for forever.

After knitting 63″ of lace at a snail’s pace, I finally made it to the other end of my Lunar Progression. Then the blocking happened…and it grew…much like lace does. Then I worried, because, well…it’s not the Doctor Who scarf or anything. I wasn’t sure it was supposed to be so long, so wide, so huge. I freaked out until it was completely dry. Then I put it on just like how it was done in the picture from the pattern and my eyes got all glassy and huge. It’s perfect!!

Having the designer comment on my Ravelry project page was an added bonus.

Now to figure out where we are in the lunar cycle so I can set this thing correctly.

Getting back to my own thing…

On the heels of Stitches West, and despite my busy schedule, I’ve started getting back to making things for myself (for now at least). I was very eager to cast something on…and this was it.

It’s my “Lunar Progression project that doesn’t quite have the perfect name just yet.” In the Doomsday Knits book they show this as more of a steampunky project. I’ve decided to take it to more watery depths.

This is called “I can’t keep track of anything while knitting on the main thoroughfare.”
So, I must frog…

It’s looking pretty good so far!!
