I HAVE.....

.... been thinking about another LACE project since I finished this one...


.....earlier this year. They are projects that require a MAXIMUM of brain power to knit ....and keep track of where you (well... ME anyway!!) are up to!.. so an investment of time and concentration is required x I have started this ...



..project .. and am VERY happy with the way it is knitting up x It is really written for 4ply but was easy to adapt to 2ply lace weight .... and is working well x

HOWEVER it does NOT work in anyway when I am out with the parents at their various Drs appointments .. as I am sure you can imagine!

SO.. I went to my stash and patterns and found what I wanted x The skein I chose is BEAUTIFUL.. as it should be .. because it is 50% SILK .... I have had it for a while... HOWEVER ..(isn't there always a ..BUT..) when it arrived in the post it had come undone and was SOOOOO TANGLED!!.. however I set to and sorted it out!!.. see WITCHY powers coming out again xx lol

I just had a little bit that had to be cut out...


NOW... (Hard to get a good picture of the beautiful colours and sheen x)....




....I have a project that can be done on the go and put down .... even in the middle of a row... then picked up again with out any problem as to .. where the heck am I up to!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a good weekend xx

Such beautiful work Diane!!! I can understand the lacy one needs concentration, probably not the best for hospital appts!!! Good to have something else that you can pick up and put down easily. Good to see you witchy powers are working well!!
