So I'm knitting and knitting some more to make rectalinear shapes for the "tree cozy" project and I'm getting excruciatingly bored with just knitting stockinette stitch (knit a row, purl a row, continue until you can't stand it anymore and then bind off). I've exhausted the simple lace and cable patterns I have and finally today I pulled out my big book of knit and crochet patterns.

So this afternoon I learned two new lace patterns and I'm now working on a piece that uses extended stitches. There are a lot of stitch patterns in this big book. I've decided that since I'm committed to knit until my arms fall off or the project is up (June 11!) I may as well make it a learning opportunity as well. By the time these cozies go up I may have developed some mad knitting skills.
