I have not been neglecting my knitting. I am halfway through clue 4 of Mandala II. The knitting has actually been pretty easy. Renee's patterns are very logical and the pattern repeat for each row is generally pretty easy to memorize. I also make sure I check what I am doing with the previous knitting to make sure things are lining up correctly. The second half of this clue should go fairly quickly as the lace patterning is getting sparser and there are actually solid knit rows (what would be considered the wrong side row were this not a circular shawl). In the first half of the clue there was lace shaping on almost every row.
