The Hairpin Lace Project Continues...

I must be trying to make up for lost time with all of my blog posting today. All I can say is that I hate being sick! Lifus Interruptus!

I've gotten a little farther on my first lace strip in my Hairpin Lace Project. As you can see, I've had to slide some amount of my stitches off of the loom to make room for more.

Most of the hairpin lace patterns I've perused have suggested using stitch markers to help keep count. After all, each strip has hundreds of loops on each side. The beginner in me has amped up that advice. I'm not marking stitches, I'm holding on to them!

This has to be making any experienced hairpin lace person giggle, but I can't help myself. I'm nervous about keeping my loops even and tangle free. Maybe I'll get over this by the third or fourth strip. Right now you can see that I've got safety pins holding onto sets of 10 loops each. I do feel like they are doing a nice job and keeping my work safe. Thank you safety pins!
