Sadly, I've had to completely frog the Lace Sweater. The yarn just didn't want to be lace. It had sat, neglected, in my project bag for ages-and-a-day.
I have plans for that yarn (though, currently, those plans aren't my own design), and you know what, I'm a lot happier with that. The sweater was honestly discouraging me, at this point, and I'm glad that I don't have to worry about it.
And, it frees me up to play around with my newest project idea, which is a pair of ribbed and lace aran-weight boot toppers.
They're not something I would usually make, but I was inspired, once again, by the designer's challenge. I had the idea of making something that would be a good stash-buster, and I've always had a weakness for aran-weight lace.
So I went hunting in my stash for something machine-washable (because if I'm making boot toppers I want them to be done in durable yarn), and from the depths of my stash came a half-used skein of the ever-ubiquitous Red Heart Super Saver!
Anyway, I've got some knitting to do on these!
