A return from the dark side

Apologies for the silence on my side for the past few weeks! Life has been moving on steadily as it gets warmer I get more and more reluctant to sit inside with my poor neglected sewing machine.

I leave you with some Trooper tea and a promise that things will not be so quiet henceforth!

Tea, my dear?

Lace Project – Poinsettia

Poinsettia

Poinsettia

I love projects that knit up quickly, anything longer than 2 weeks and there’s no doubt I’m going to lose all interest. This Poinsetta has been in my closet for over a year,  Sydney weather isn’t really cold enough to justify a neck cowl but the colour of this wool is too beautiful to hide away.

This project was my first attempt at lace knitting, after a few false starts I picked it up surprisingly quickly and it’s probably when I fell back in love with knitting!

Of course, it’s not all sunshine and roses. My attempt at gauge is once again ridiculously off and squeezing the cowl on past my nose is a struggle, even blocking didn’t increase the size very much. But, given the perfect fit of the cowl around my neck maybe my gauge is fine, it’s just my big head getting in the way lol

Lace Crochet Bracelet

Lace Crochet Bracelet

My circles aren’t in any way perfect and the thread winds and curls lightly around my wrist but the sheer simplicity of it all makes me happy.
