Magic Cochin promises that
normal service will
resume in late October.
At the start of each week Natalie of The Yarn Yard hosts "Making Monday" and puts together a list of links to lots of busy bloggers' projects. In week one I shared my knitted lace shawl made with some of Natalie's beautiful lace yarn.
I said that I had some yarn left over after finishing the Rock Island shawl – well, here's what I've made, and completing them has luckily coincided with Making Monday 6 . . .
Pretty lace mitts with jewelled edges – the pattern is called Lady of the Woods and it's available on Ravelry.
I can't say they were easy to knit! But I persevered and eventually I got there . . . then because I have two hands and I'm not one to give up, I persevered all over again.
They are very pretty (they don't really go with my printmaker/gardener fingernails, so that's why I've modelled them palm-side up ;-)
And there's still some yarn left over (Natalie – is this magic yarn that never ends?) probably enough to knit another pair of Lady of the Woods mittens . . . but I won't be doing that! I'll use it to make something easier. No, I've a better idea, I'll pop it into my stash box and wait until I find it some friends to knit a multi-coloured lacy something or other.
Now to start a new knitting project (I've slipped hopelessly back into knitaholism) with some cleverly shaded Kauni yarn – something big and easy – I can even manage without my specs!
