New neckline and no holes!
Lots of photos today
well this is what you get when you add 8mm needles
They were a perfect fit for my soon to be felted windsurfing hat. The wool is Crystal Palace Iceland and is so soft to knit with.
Still more pictures to come!
this is the new more
I can now wear this to work without worrying if my colleagues can see what colour underwear I have on.
Finally, I have joined Wendy’s Summer of Lace group on Yahoo. If you are into knitting lace come and join us, they seem a friendly bunch
So for all those lace knitters out there here are a couple of WIP’s
This is Kiri, She is being knitted in a yarn called Patons Coral on 5mm needles. It is heavier than the pattern called for but she is to wear on the beach when the wind gets chilly So she needs a bit of body.
This one doesn’t have a name yet. It is loosely based on a Morehouse Capri Shawl but with lots more holes and lots of dangling beads. You can’t see very well from the photo but there are smoke coloured glass leaves and garnet coloured faceted beads. It is knitted in a lace weight yarn bought from Yarnwise on EBay.co.uk called Morello Cherry.Once the thing is finished I am going to add an edging and possibly more beads to the YO’s as well. The good thing about this pattern is that I am adding the beads as I go – no fiddly threading them onto the ball before I start – much too time consuming for me! Once it is finished I will take some more photos and if anyone is interested I will write up the pattern and post it on the blog.
