For every new beginning
there is an old one first
or last if you like
there are many things
So I finished these, I enjoyed toying with the pattern that required 4 mm needles originally, yet I felt like 2,5mm. I downscaled by adding 1 stitch in the garter section of the pattern and by repeating 6 instead of 4 times. I had fun figuring this out.
And also I made this one - for our dear friend Isobel. What a delight this shawl-project, I think I will make many more as it makes an excellent gift. Ideal pattern for the very fine and drapy alpaca I had - I held 4 strands together and attained near perfect gauge (if there is such a thing).
I've almost finished this one. What a contrast to the 2,5mm, here I'm using 8mm needles...
Anyway, I thought at this point, I should begin.
The Rhombus wrap.
A wonderful design I've been admiring for a wee bit now.
I patiently herded my yarns (Habu Tsumugi silk and Habu merino).
I qietly jumped a little circle in the air when the new pattern book arrived in the box.
And this afternoon, while Noor was sleeping and Lieveke placidly playing, I simply cast on.
