WIP Wednesday

I started working this week on a few of the stitch patterns in this book that Paul bought me a few weeks ago. What beautiful laces and fun stitches to try!


After playing around with several of the patterns, I settled on this zigzag lace stitch. I thought it might be pretty as a scarf with this silk/merino blend yarn, and I added a garter stitch trim to prevent curling of the edges.


My other task this week has been deciding which projects I want to work on while traveling and stocking my yarn bag for the trip. I think I'll make some of these, and some of these, and one of these, along with the scarf I'm working on.


I'm looking for a fun and interesting hat to work on, preferably in a child size. Have a recommendation?

  7. I love that pattern Joy!! I have been working with the stitch patterns in that book for a few weeks, trying to create a neck warmer (this project has given me a whole new respect for knitting pattern designers :)). Can't wait to see your finished piece
