I found a new pattern… I am so in love. It’s the Louisa Harding L9-03 Bramble. There is lace, which I really enjoy doing. Most people who I talk with, either hate, or love lace work. There is just something so great about having to pay attention, while knitting. I have since found out that I end up purling, while doing a simple garner stitch piece. In turn I have decided that I need to pick projects that will keep my mind engaged, so that I don’t mistakenly start the stockinette stitch in the wrong place.
I thought that the lace was getting lost in the crazy colour way, so I decided that I would knit it in Zen Yarn Garden – Matrix Splatter. I had 3 skeins of this yarn, that I had in my stash. I thought that it would be amazing as the virus shawl (a crocheted triangle shawl), but it never really felt right. Now that I have been knitting this piece, it feels right. Sometimes yarn tells me what it wants to be, in this case the yarn has spoken, and it will be a beautiful cold shoulder top.
I can’t wait to finish this one. I started it Thursday evening, I finished the waist ribbing Friday evening. Saturday I was out playing late, came home to try to working on my sweater. So I figured out that knitting while tired, is not a good idea while being sleepy. Lace requires a sharp mind, that doesn’t have cobwebs. I worked on it today before running around doing errands and things. I am loving the way it looks, so far. I should take pics of the progress I have gone so far. I will get pictures tomorrow in the light & add them. I am so in love with this project.
Ok, I have stuff that needs my attention, so until next time,
