A Sweater in Charcoal and Red
Playing with two colors of sport weight wool.
Why do I have so much yarn
My daughter asked me why I have so much yarn. I told her it was an investment so that when I retire from work in 3 or 4 years I will be able to knit for the rest of my life even while on a fixed income. It will also provide an inheritance to help pay for the grandkids college funds. Stash justified.
My "Alexia" shawl from Beaded Lace Knitting, by Anniken Allis
Made with Madelinetosh Lace in discontinued "grapefruit" colorway. Used less than the 950 yards and over 2,700 Japanese seed beads in size 8 from Fusion Beads. The true color is more coral.
Minnesota State Fair 2016 Part One
Knitting, crochet, tatting, and hardanger.
I used baby suri alpaca lace weight with a thread of lurex running through it. It's very soft & yummy! I just took this out of storage so it looks a bit wonky.
Baby's winter woollies
Just finished my latest project for a friend's grandson. He'll be ready for winter now! I found the pattern in one of my folders. It is a 'Peter Pan' pattern by Wendy and must be at least 20 years old and I don't even know if the firm exists these days, I expect not.
This was one of my first lace projects & I never could keep it pinned while wearing it, so I brainstormed & used dyed leather strips to braid it together in-between washing/blocking times. Works great for triangular shawls!
