The Invasion

The house has been invaded by second-hand clothes. My parents, whose house I am still holed up in, are opening a clothing store and the “stock” they’ve accumulated has taken over our home until they finish renovating the building and move things in.
The office has been invaded.
The garage is full.



The den is full of store racks and clothes and the kitchen is hidden.
Also, the whole house now reeks of thrift store odors, which makes my cat randy.
This is Zsam being happy and horny. Adorable, eh?

So this is why I haven’t updated anything. I got to feeling better but now the house is obscenely crowded and
I’ve been helping them catalog things constantly.

So I’ll be updating with my Amazing Lace Challenge later this week and after that I’ll do my Project Spectrum and ABC-Along. But I’m still here. Just falling behind.

Bad Megan. Bad blogger.

AL: Meet the Team


Teammate 1

The Red Lace Socks are a foray into sock design. They are knit from trusty, sturdy Knit Picks Palette (in red). So far they have done little but frustrate - they've made three trips to the frog pond in the last week, mostly due to dropped stitches and split-y yarn.


The pattern used is the Simple Lace Rib from The Harmony
Guides 450 Knitting Stitches. So far, there is a leg and half a heel flap. As to what type of heel is being used, we don't know. The toe is undecided.





Teammate 2

Megan is a chronically slow knitter. This is her second lace project and thus far has done a lot of cursing and throwing the sock aside. Right now she has some sort of flu-like illness and is working on the sock (along with the other WIPs) almost constantly.







Happy Lace Knitting!
