Leben ist kein Ponyhof aber das leben ist ein Alpakahof.
What a difference a week makes!
I've been knitting mostly on this.
And it is now blocking. The yarn is a self striping yarn that does cool things when knit in the round. This is a good pattern with simple lace and slip stitches, and every row is a bit different so it keeps you occupied nicely. However, it does start with 350 stitches or so on the needles.
