10 April 2013


I've been sidetracked from doing good deeds.  What with the chilly weather we've been having, I haven't felt like going outside and looking for opportunities.  Instead I've been sitting in front of the TV watching Netflix and knitting.  I used Ravelry to find some free lace patterns so that I could use up some of the yarn I had sitting in the stash without a project in mind.

I really like making lace because of how dramatically it changes from being a pile of cooked spaghetti to something beautiful with the application of water and stretching.

This first one is the Lila shawl, made with Schaeffer yarn in Anne.  It's really more of a wide scarf than a shawl, but still pretty and it only took one skein of yarn.

This second one is called Yakbeere.  I had to make some  corrections to the pattern because it didn't make any mathematical sense, but after I figured out the right numbers it turned out nicely.  Made from Knit Picks Palette in Wood.
