I've been busy with cables for the past little while. I've got a cabled sweater for my niece and the must have cardi, for me, on the go.
Cables, cables and more cables....I adore cables.
But then one day it hit me. I want to knit some lace. And not just any lace. I want to knit lace that is intricate and mind boggling but most importantly....challenging.
I decided to start by finishing this half done scarf from the UFO pile. It is a simple garter stitch lace pattern made with a purple alpaca blend. I now want to bring it up a notch. I've got the book Victorian Lace and I'm going for it.
However, in the mean time, I've got this scarf.
I won't wear it and I have no idea why I bought this gorgeous ball of fibre in a royal purple colour. I like purple, but have nothing to go with it. So it looks like I'll tuck this number, after it's blocked, into the Christmas gift stash.
Now all I have to do is find a purple lovin', scarf wearin', alpaca adorin' person to give this to. Any suggestions????
Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
