No tin roof here. Just heat and ick
I'm almost done with Imp's Gryffie scarf. You can see one end in the picture. I've got one and a half blocks of red, and one gold stripe. After I block the silly thing, I'll blanket stitch the ends up with more gold yarn.
I've tried the gauge swatch with my lace yarn at least five different times, I think. Halfway through the stitch count goes wonky on me. I can't quite figure out why. I'll have to really take a look at this latest swatch and see what I've done. This means tinking back a row or five.
I've done it so many times, that I've got the lace pattern memorized! Maybe that's the problem. I've gotten complacent. Huh.
Now if you excuse me, I've got about four new mosquito bites to ignore.
