I’m not trying to turn my blog into a knitting blog or anything, but this is what happens when you’re holed up for a few days trying to get over being sick. You have all the time in the world to knit! A friend of mine handspun this stunning yarn and I fell hard for it. I bought it from her ages ago and just now found a project for it. The lace on this shawl is supposed to look like ginkgo leaves. Pretty! You can see more photos and read more details on my Ravelry page. I still have about 100 yards of this yarn left so I’m knitting a quick lace scarf with it- I’ll post pictures of that when I’m done.
Scarf I just finished knitting from yarn that I handspun. It’s a mulberry silk/merino wool blend from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. And it’s gorgeous.
Done, done, DONE! Officially finished my lace parasol. Visit my Ravelry page for more info.
Crappy blocking photos but it’s done!!!!! My first Herbert Niebling lace that I’m going to turn into a cover for a parasol. Each point has three sparkly green beads.
A more recent shot of the Herbert Niebling lace I’m knitting to cover a parasol. I’m about halfway through. This is by far the most difficult thing I’ve ever knitted. It’s hard to tell since it’s still on needles and unblocked but there’s stems, leaves and acorns knitted in it. It’s going to look gorgeous when finished! I just ordered the parasol frame to stretch this on when it’s done. Yay!
