What is on my needles today

I am reading Elizabeth Zimmerman's - Knit Around. When I can to the chapter on the Pie Are Square Shawl, well naturally, I became fascinated by that technique. So guess what? I am knitting my version. Yesterday I went to my lys and perused the lovely fuzzies. The lace yarn that they featured seemed way too thin. There was a skein of Lorna's Laces, just one, and was the price really high. I didn't purchase it thinking I would have to buy 2 skeins to finish my project. Well....after I got home and did some math calculations, I would have been fine with the yardage in that one skein. I did purchase some lovely yarn that is working out lovely. [less yardage and about the same $ as the Lorna's Laces]. Oh well, next time.

I became confused with the "ridges" versus "rows". I have made a boo-boo at the very beginning and refused to rip it out. So, I am actually missing 6 rows in the second increase. I really hope that it doesn't matter - it really won't be true to the concept. We shall see as time goes by.
