Whoa...two posts in 1 Day...

I am feeling a bit better...bit more creative. I picked up my needles and cast on for Kira-my first lace project. It is slow going. I have made some booboos already but rather than frogging back to a life line I try to understand how the stitches are and how it should be. I try to fix them and then frog back to my life line. I tend to overthink things with knitting. But have to say lace knitting is some of the most interesting to date-amazing what those yo will create.

For my secret pal the lace patterns I have:
Pacific Northwest Shawl, Field of Flowers, Seascape Shawl, Leaf Lace Shawl, Flower Basket, and Top-down Mock Faroese Lace Shawl.

I like the Faroese style more than the triangle shaped ones.

On the writing front:
Writing A book is far easier than writing a book that is a series. A Book is contained. A series you have to have the book container and something that ties it over a series. But I am just about done with my major secondary characters and jotting out plot points. I like to have a lot created upfront because while I am creating I am getting a feel for the characters. I have to say out of all my writing Lilith and Daemon are my favorite so far.
