I finished my KAL!!! After deciding to knit lace I discoved a girl can not be without a set of blocking wires. We had three sets of them at the store so one of them went home with me and I am very pleased to beable to use them on my project. Blocking wires just make for nice crisp edges on lace projects. I think this might be the first ever project I have knit without a very apparent err :) Now I am ready for lace knit #2 but first to finish Mike's Christmas present. He is getting a pair of wool socks from me.
