How the Rhinocerous Got His Skin

Again not a picture in sight.

I've been working on Cece; as I worked I thought my knitting was looking loose and sloppy. Eye my knitting, eye Bonne Marie's picture on the pattern. Knit some more. More squinching of eyes to make it look smaller. Finally slip all stitches on to waste yarn.

This is lace knitting; lace needs to be blocked. If I block this, it will increase in size, and I will look like the Rhinocerous in Kipling's story. So I'm swatching on needles two sizes smaller, and it looks much better, the lace better defined, even before blocking.

Yarn: Sonata from Elann.
Needles: Size 5 lace needles from Addi.
