Not that anyone necessarily needs a sweater or shawl to contend with Texas weather year round, air conditioned offices and homes certainly can demand it. I always seem to be chilled in the mornings.
What a nice project to work up! Just a small bit of adjustment with the yarn as I added a new ball so the colors would blend properly and off again. Very quick to make and I love it.
Side note about the yarn: The Patons Lace in Patina is a bit “sticky” to work with. It doesn’t glide though your fingers well. Better to pre-load on your finger than depend on it to flow well. But very soft and pretty.
Thank you to my beautiful daughter-in-law for modeling it.
I had this brilliant idea (in my opinion) for a new kitchen curtain. Now….to find a motif I can work with. I came across an awesome hexagon lace motif on Pinterest and off we go! I have two completed and had to block them to see how they are going to look. I think I’m going to love it.
We’ve moved! And now I’ve had to reorganize for the space I have. I entered it all into my stash on Ravelry. What a nice feature of the site. I made notes on each entry as to location (bins, closets, totes, etc.) and got it all put away.
So….please don’t tell my husband I have 41 Miles of yarn!
I love it when I can get my yarn fix somewhat close to home. I traveled the short 1 hour drive to Seguin to spend some much needed time with luxurious squishy fiber and some darned nice people. I even won a door prize! It was fabulous! Here’s a picture of my haul.
Sharing this baby set I just finished for our great-niece due in May. Top is Marianna Mel’s All-In-One, Soaker is just my idea of a soaker & Booties are Ashlee Prisbrey’s Crochet Wrap Around Button Boots.
