Raindrops on roses...

...And whiskers on kittens...

I have been feeling like taking a lot of photos lately, and I am trying to teach myself how to edit them and such... Anyways, today was a rainy day so I decided to try and capture some raindrops.




Last night I started on the lace portion of Hey, Teach! I have never worked using a chart before and about six rows in I realized I had messed up royally. I had forgotten the two stockinette stitches at the beginning and end of each row, then I tried to compensate by knitting together stitches and... Ugh. I finally had to admit that it wasn't right. So I just let the project sit overnight and I picked it up again today for frogging and restarted the lace. Here you see the first repeat, minus two rows. I wanted to make sure there was enough light for photographing!

Looking good. Frogging is sooo hard, but it will be so worth it. Love the Hey Teach pattern, and I think that your colour selection will be great.

Love this pattern, just wish I had time to make it. I think I'll knit vicariously through you! Now I am anxiously awaiting your FO.

Those purple flowers are gorgeous! And the lace isn't bad either, well done. I've got my first chart project coming up and I'm a little nervous about it!
