Lusna is taking shape. The near constant knitting is paying off but it also means I haven't lifted my eyes once to the television in over a month!
I have the first border completed and it took less than a week.
It's so much fun to watch the pattern emege. I planned it on paper but never knit a swatch, so I am seeing it complete and in one piece for the very first time. And I'm delighted.
I did have one near catastrophy a few days ago, I mistakingly pulled a needle out and left 40+ slippery silky stitches to undo before my eyes. It took over an hour, daylight and a furrowed brow to get them all back to where they should have been. It was a sweaty finger excercise, but I still haven't added a lifeline. I do like to knit on the edge!
I unzipped my provisional cast on without any issues yesterday and I have picked up and knit several rows of the second border now. By next week I'll be ready for the edging and vibrating with excitement as the finish line is so close.
