In other news, I'm a joiner, apparently in the footsteps of Kay, so I know I'm in good company.
The first is Dishrag Tag, another economical and fun knitting swap by Emily, of Wee Tiny Sock Swap fame. This time it's a relay race among 21 teams. Thanks to Rhonda for telling me about it before signups closed. (Sorry, y'all. If you're not in it yet, you're a spectator.)
The second thing I joined lately, also following in Kay's shoes, is Melanie's Mystery Stole 3. What is it? A progressively released (free) pattern for a lace stole. So far we know it will be good in black or white color families and beads are optional. I've decided to throw my yarn in the ring and give it a try. Given my speed knitting lace stoles (the one I'm still working on from 8 years ago?), I forsee falling behind, oh, right away. But I can finish some swatches before it begins June 29. This bandwagon you can still jump on - it closes July 6. And don't worry, she's worked space in to consider the release of the last Harry Potter book - she skips a week for the clue to give you time to read the book.
I'm my most recent prize - the merino laceweight from Nova. Photos to follow soon!
As I used to say in college during the first week of the term, I'm not behind yet! Yay!
