We got back last night. I am glad to be home. Nothing like a trip to the mountains but after about a week I start to really miss being in my house, with my creature comforts and contact with the outside world. Mainly some news and a little internet would do me a world of good.
I have no idea the name of this lace pattern, but it's simply knitting every other round and then knit 2, yo, ssk, k2tog, yo, knit 2 on one round and knit 1, yo, ssk, knit 2, k2tog, yo, knit 1 the other round. 4 round repeats, pretty cool effect. Any repeat of 8 would work. I'll write it up as soon as I have the chance. It would make a good newborn hat. Or a good grown-up hat. I promise to get right on that.
