More progress

Tell me that I'm nearly done someone please! This seems to be going on forever. I managed to knit 2 rows today when I took the boys to see the Simpson's Movie - sadly no more as the inconsiderate people turned the lights off. I ask you, can't these cinema people realise that not everyone wants to go and watch a film? Some of us like to knit at the same time, and with some patterns, you need light. Ah well, never mind. At least the Simpson's was good, very funny, but then I am very easy to please. Simple minded you see!

Anyway, I have 19 leaf repeats,and am aiming for 21 before I start the border. Am using straight needles which are not quite long enough - the circular ones are just slightly a different diameter so will try and just resort to them when I do the border. It's getting a bit squashed on the needles now. Tell me it will be worth it though someone please. I have tried so hard to keep Startitis at bay and it's getting more and more difficult. Tipsy is calling.

you have done loads since I last looked! It WILL be worth it and you know it too! How inconsiderate of the cinema people to turn the lights out when you wanted to knit lace! Glad you enjoyed the film, I think I'd enjoy it too, the Simpsons do make me chuckle!

Oh it looks gorgeous! Keep going, I know how hard that last stretch is, but it will be so worth it.
