Hey there,
I've been out of the loop (haha :rollseyes: ) for a few months....got busy with preparation for the MCAT, and I haven't touched my last project, which was pretty demanding, for at least 3, if not 4 months. All the studying left me wishing for something creative (oh and yes, I got good scores, thank you :happydancing:), and now that I have a month of calm before the storm, I'm thinking about picking up my old project again...But it's so hard to get motivated! I just got an e-mail from the forum today reminding me of my long-term absence, so I figured logging back on here would help me get started again. Motivate me!:thumbsup:

Welcome back! I would check out the What'cha Knitting forum for lots of inspiration.

Ok, I was looking for something quick, but not too easy, so I could get my skillz back, but didn't find anything....so I cautiously picked up my old project, and guess what, I found the place where I stopped in less than a minute, and have knitted two rows so far w/o any difficulty! (the whole thing is 30 inches long, so 2 rows take a while):cheering:

EDIT: btw, this is the WIP. It's a hooded shawl. Unfortunately, I can't post the pattern/FO photo because it's from a book (Nicky Epstein's Knitting Beyond the Edge). I had put so much work into it already, it just didn't feel right to drop it.

WOW, That is awesome.. I love the colors. That makes me want to make one, lol

Congrats..

But why can't you post the f/0? You are acknowledging it is from the book...

Oh, I don't have a scanner.

OMG, I just found this....do you guys think it's knit or crochet? Because if it's knitted, I MUST make it. *dies*:drool:

It's knitted. All of the patterns in the Victorian Lace Today book are knitted. (and photographed gorgeously, I might add) That book is at the top of my wish list. I loved that caplet too and may have to make it also (but not yet - too much other stuff going on).
