FO: Elvish Leaves Dishcloth


Love. Love love love. Love!

Here is the pattern.

I made a few boo-boos but nothing big enough to rip back for.

Easy enough for my first attempt at lace, tough enough to keep my attention…and can I tell you how neat it was to see the pattern forming as I knit? I think I’m hooked. *swoon*

Now if someone could just find those extra 4 hours a day I need to have *time* for a lace obsession, I’ll be eternally grateful. Kthxbai. :D

I just keep getting behinderer.

Thanks for your patience. My seven-month-old son had a weird allergic reaction a little over a week ago, so we’ve been running around in even more frantic circles than usual here trying to get him sorted out. We’ve got enough of a handle on things now to get back to normal (whatever that is, anyway!) so here’s an update on the crochet front:

First off, the pattern that I’ve been vaguely talking about since time began: almost done. I’ve been working on it so long I’m not sure how I feel about it any more, quite honestly, so when I’ve got the (hopefully) final version made all the way up, I’ll be getting in touch with folks who expressed an interest in testing. It’s a couple-few hours worth of work with RHSS, so if there’s anyone else out there who’s curious, let me know. If we can all stay reasonably healthy, this should be happening this week.

Secondly…oh, goodness, I know there was a secondly. I’ve been interrupted 5-ish times in the last paragraph, so I’m not sure what else I was going to write about. This is why folks sometimes get e-mail from me at 2 in the morning. It’s the only time I have the peace and quiet to get anything done! LOL.

More when I catch up with myself a bit more…

Too exciting! (Updated!)

My patterns are now available for sale as Ravelry downloads! Yay!

If you’re on Ravelry, you can grab them there, I’m neatlytangled and the store is ‘Neatly Tangled Designs.’ If you’re not, I’m hoping to get buttons up here by the end of the day. I’ll update when I’ve managed to get it done. I’d hold off announcing it all if I weren’t so excited! LOL.

Updated: They’re up! You can find them using the patterns tab above, or here:
