I went to my little lace group last Tuesday night and look at some of the things these talented women have gotten up to!
Ruth was showing off her recently-blocked Aeolian shawl made with FDC’s Centolavaggi. This may be one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever seen. And Ruth pretty much rocks the house when it comes to blocking.
So why the title of this post? Because we were talking about the Aeolian, which three of the four of us have done, and how when you get to the end you are purling back over so many stitches it just feels like it will never, ever end. Thus, our new name – The Sisters of the Perpetual Purl.
And what am I up to? Well, I just finished and blocked Fickle Knitter’s new Obi Shawl – I did it as a mystery KAL, but I don’t have a pic yet because it is still blocking. And I am hard at work on Cornish Rhapsody. Again, nothing to show. I suck. But I am hoping to suck less in the near future.
