There is something so pure and beautiful and full of quiet wonder when winding off a fresh skein of yarn.
I feel a strong sense of personal obligation to my creativity,
and the yarn, and the potential it has to ‘become’.
And this project is going to take everything I can muster to ‘get it right’… because it will involve (hopefully) my first attempt at simple lace stitches. I figure there will be no surprises or mysteries with this project, and that I will post my tentative steps along the way.
Progress of Things Handmade :
Something fuzzy and very leafy green is in the bag . . .
It incorporates alpaca yarn & mohair/silk yarn alternately.
I love, love, love same-color mixed-texures knitting !
Next, something ruffly, also alpaca, and resembling some kind of a sea creature . . .
hanging from a lamp to dry . . .
There is the progress report for now at eleven days left to Make before Christmas.
How are your Christmas Creations coming along?
Those greens are as pretty as you said they were!
Oh right Morrie ! These yarns even surprised *moi* at how well the ‘striping’ works ! Garter stitch, 2 rows each of two luxury yarns… how simple, yet so lovely !
I love those greens.
Oh , you should see them in person! I’ll photograph them as best as I can, but the two colors & textures are heavenly together if I may say so myself. 🙂 xx
If you are anything like me, lace will captivate you and obsess you. 😉
Emily, this project will only be some simple and easy yo’s in a rib, is all, but that’s a good first step don’t you think? 🙂 xx
