Pheelya's February Goals

One month down and keeping up nicely! I over estimated my ability and time by putting so many large projects on my January list. The two items that still remain from my January list will obviously be moved into February. Both of those projects are over 70% done, so that's good. I decided that February will be a month of small projects considering I still have these two big projects and my first lace project on needles (Secret of the Stole ii). Silly me bought cobweb lace for my first lace project. The poor woman at the LYS where I bought the yarn tried her best to deter me from buy cobweb lace for my first project, but I just fell in lust with the berry-red colored yarn that I closed myself off to any sensible advice and bought it. Payment for my stubborness?? ... I have frogged and cast-on 4 times already!! *sigh* I'm taking it much slower this time and counting and recounting my stitiches every other row, and I have learned all about "lifelines" with lace knitting. I WILL be adding these into my lace knitting practice!

This first lace project has been so frustrating and yet I am determine to knit lace, so crazy determined that I joined two other lace KALs! (Dem Fischer sin Fru & Mystic Light Mystery Shawl) Color me crazy!
