Just wanted to show you the little scarf I made last week! It’s Branching Out from Knitty - for a friend who’s just announced she’s pregnant - yay!
It’s made with Debbie Bliss pure silk (which I now seem to be slightly obsessed with since starting that shrug!). I’ve never blocked anything before so I left it (nervously) to dry over the weekend… and [size=6][color=red]wow![/color][/size]… blocking is amazing!! I must also say that the pattern designer is a genius, the lace was so simple to do, but looks super-complicated to my non-knitty friends
'Scuse the big pics:
and yes… untangling your lacey scarf from a prickly shrub is enormous fun… . aherm :doh:
Also, I managed to get a snap of my mum’s yoga mat bag when I saw her this weekend - it’s the Namaste pattern, again from Knitty.
Here ya go:
Happy Easter to you all
