Nothing on my Needles!

I just finished two projects almost at the same time, and very oddly I don't have a single project on my needles at the moment.  To keep from going off the deep end I am grabbing yarn at random and making quick dish cloths while I prepare for my next project.  I need to hurry up and get my next knitting adventure started or the dish cloths will take over.

My First Lace Pattern is Here

I finally finished not only the knitting but the pattern write up for my first lace pattern!  I posted it this evening on Ravelry, and I have already sold one copy of the pattern!  I love the way it turned out, and I hope you all agree! 

Great as a Wrap

Great as a Table Runner

The Pattern is Available Under Shawls.

Time Flies

Well summer is over in my neck of the woods.  Kids are back to school, and I realized it has been over a month since I posted.  I almost made my end of July deadline on the yellow lace.  But those last finishing touches such as blocking and photographing and finishing the pattern write up are still in process.  I do have a little tease of the blocking however....

I have this wonderful new blocking tool, knitters block by  Individual squares hook together to the necessary shape and you simply wet and pin your knitting into place and shape.  My only problem was that I didn't have enough blocks for the entire piece as it is quite long.  I may need another set of squares.  Pattern for the yellow lace is on the way!
