(which is apparently not easy, because I wrote ip twice)
I started the pi shawl last night, when I was hanging out with friends. Now, Emily Ocker and I are definitely not friends. I must have started that shawl more than 10 times. Now with a thicker yarn, maybe a smoother yarn, we could get together for some tea, or on a bad day a nice hard lemonade. Lace weight alpaca? Not so much. So, I started this with the Magic 8 cast on. 10 stitches on the needles, decreased down to 9 before the first increase round.
And because I wasn't home very much yesterday, I completely failed to finish the toe of my socks. Maybe today around pod stuffing and condo cleaning I'll finish that off, do another round of increases, figure out if I'm going to embellish the project in any way (I had bought 4 balls of the Misti Alpaca Lace for Serrano... so I have a fair amount of yardage to work with for the pi shawl).
