Go Blue!

We have a painted room!  It is so bright, calm and pretty!  I can't wait to get the fabric for the windows soon! 
The dormer will soon hold her treasure chest with dress up clothes! 
David and Abigail tied Marsel's birthday balloons to a lot of string and let it soar!
It was lots of fun in lieu of a kite;  the weather didn't cooperate for that activity this time! 
Araignee inspired me to knit the Regina Marie shawl.  I have worked a bit on it; it has several new-to-me stitch figurations and right after I took this picture, I dropped it and lost half of the stitches!
As many of you know, you can't easily pick up lost lace stitches and I had to rip the whole thing out.
You have to make 26 repeats of a 12 row pattern so I only lost two....Ack!  It is lace weight yarn on number four needles.  I am not loving it. 
And starting over is the last chance it is going to have.  I have a feeling it isn't going to make it in this lace weight yarn-it is hard to feel in my fingers, it is too cobwebby to hold but I am going to knit 5 repeats before I give up-I will decide then.  
The blue is pretty and it would make a great shawl.....

  1. The room is divine. So sorry Regina Marie is giving you fits. I had a lot of issues at first too but once it takes off it's an easy ride and sooooo pretty.
