Got this one started! Using Artyarns Milano crimson pattern is by Judy Marples. Not many mistakes to go back for this time. (Knock on wood)
Started the first wing. Pretty happy with progress. Working flat has made the traditional knot stitch more difficult and slower. Makes me want to knit though the back loop. But doing that would make the yarn settle differently making the work look different. Keeping it traditional.
Looking back the piece had some mistakes completely due to my own in-attention to either the stitches in the piece or the pattern.
I still need to find beads for the roasted pumpkin wild silk version.
Plus I think I have someone to give this marino version to.
This Craftsy.com class is really good for learning new things about lace. It uses a pattern called Fiori Autunnali. It’s start is really unique and the way it transitions, while a little complex, has lots of help for you in how you can rescue yourself from missteps.
I started this version of it with a nice lace merino wool. After starting the first ‘wing’ I realized some of the starting areas didn’t line up, so I’m unsure if I will finish this one. Julia is telling me I should finish it and let it be as it is. I’m inclined to agree because I have all the yarn I need to finish it. In any case this version will be beautiful.
I bought the yarn meant for the project in Roasted Pumpkin (Miss Babs
I know one things for sure. I LOVE making lace.
I’ve been working on this one for a little more than two years. I’m almost done! It’s a simple lace pattern done in a lace/fingering weight yarn (http://goo.gl/4A7GQf) made of a blend of Yak and Silk. The color is ruby, and it’s as soft and warm as it looks. The pattern is here: http://goo.gl/WfxTDT
That’s right! All blocked and finished! It’s not quite dry yet. Just one more day!
The Ravelry project is here!
I’ve been working on this one for months – off and on.
Loving this yarn! Here is a link to the Ravelry project!
I started this one on a whim, mostly because I was bored and I had some Galileo yarn sitting near me. I love working this yarn and I have several ongoing projects in various colorways using it. Here’s my progress in the last week or so.
