I finally finished Embossed Leaves, which I keep mistakenly referring to as “House of Leaves” – the book by Mark Z. Danielewski that I was deeply into at the time of casting on six months ago.

Though the pattern is very pretty, and the closest thing I’ve ever attempted to knitting lace (“They’ve got holes, Mummy”, as my unimpressed daughter has pointed out) I’m disappointed by the obvious laddering that’s happened between the double-pointed needles. Move to circulars, maybe? I really don’t want to. For whatever reason, I have a fetish for DPNs. I am just going to have to get better at this.
