So, I managed to survive the budding vine lace and I have been working on the lily of the valley lace section. This is where we ran into the nupps. I must say that they are not nearly as frustrating as I had anticipated (based on knitter/internet lore). Here is what it looks like ... Okay, I can't find my camera, but they are very cool.
Oh and I have yet to knit another stitch on the Cherrywood Scarf and I am starting to get concerned if I will ever finish it.
