Well, I definitely wasn't expecting to finish these blocks up as quickly as I did.....but here they are.....done!! All 18 of the half blocks are now completed and waiting to be put into a quilt top. For the first time I am actually caught up with this mystery. Now I wonder what step #6 will entail.
Sweater Update: I worked on it for a bit this morning. Manged to get the first lace section done plus the four rows of garter stitch. Looks like the eyelet row is next. Wonder how hard this will be to accomplish? I've never done any lace knitting at all. And have only done one sweater....and that one was with large needles and bulky yarn. So this is definitely a learning experience.....and a most pleasant one at that.
