Here's the Plan (for now anyway)

After much contemplation, I've decided that the Alpine Shawl from Victorian Lace Today (page 36) is a pattern worthy of the Sundara silk lace weight.

Last summer I learned how to read lace charts, and I’ve made a number of shawls over the past year. Still, the Alpine is a rather ambitious endeavor for Ms. Instant Gratification.

I cast on the first time on Saturday (more about that tomorrow), and it’s apparent that I’m going to need a second “mindless” project to knit when I’m too tired to concentrate on lace. This will make the Alpine take longer, but I think it’ll save me a whole lot of tinking back and aggravation in the long run.

Now, I just have to choose a mindless knitting project.
