I am knitting a table runner using a pattern from Kay Meador's "I Can't Believe I'm Lace Knitting" using Sophia in a linen color. It is a 50/50 cotton/linen blend. What a well written pattern, both charts and written. It is a fun knit. There is also a scarf in there I will knit when I am done with the table runner. YOu can't have too many scarves.

Wow a table runner. I would love to see a picture of that. The cotton/linen blend sounds nice. I guess it is a fine yarn? How is it to knit? I imagine there is very little stretch to it.

I knit a hug into every stitch

No it is not fine yarn in fact a little rough, but it is going to
be a great table runner. It was a little rough which is why I
didn't want to make a sweater out of it, but this is perfect. I will
put pics up when finished. It is going quickly although I am actively
working on 3 sweaters, the table runner and a baby blanket. Ea day I
try to do min 4 rows on ea project. I am trying to keep the old mind
active. The baby blanket is a tree of life, the sweater are either lace or cable and the runner is a sampler of lace. Then one sweater is
ss, I need something easy to take to my Sun. knitting group.
