The Lace Progresseth….
OK – I won’t win awards for the language, but hell, I don’t care ! My lace scarf now has 6 pattern repeats, and I think I am getting the hang of it 🙂
Because I guess this means I can be a real knitter. I haven’t gone far beyond the dreaded garter stitch scarf, but now I have finally got the courage to prove to myself that I can 🙂
Exciting Knitting News
Yesterday I started some Lace. Nothing too ambitious, it’s the pattern from Knitty called “Branching Out”. You can see the link here.
And here is my version after 2 pattern repeats…..
And a close up.
Though I do feel very clever and pleased with myself, I couldn’t have done it without the wonderful Emma.
Tyler Models His Surprise Jacket
This is a picture of Tyler, (my cousin Katie’s little one) wearing the Elizabeth Zimmerman Jacket I made while my grandmother was dying. Although I had intended for it to be for another baby, this one was knitted during a time that was very emotional, and I felt that it should go to the first of a new generation of our family, as the last generation fades away.
Underneath Tyler you can see the blankie that I also made for him That was made from one 200gm ball of Bendigo wool/cotton/lycra in a stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch chequerboard pattern. It is finished with an i-cord loop for attaching to strollers etc…
