Below are images of a recently completed Estonian Lace Scarf. The pattern is Lily of the Valley from “Knitted Lace of Estonia” by Nancy Bush. (Note: Not an affiliate link)
I used Paton’s Lace yarn. It is not as crisp as others I have used in the past, it has more of a halo. An acrylic blend, so I am not sure I like it. If it is not used for another lace shawl I can always use it for baby items. It is soft, and washable! And very inexpensive in comparison.
It is freezing outside, but inside I was more than a little pleased to discover my plant blooming. It was a gift last year for Mother’s Day from a son-in-law. Just a few days before I had made the comment that I “…hoped it would survive until Spring”.
That’ll teach me!
The goal for 2014 is to have one significant shawl completed for each month. I am not sure if I want to begin on a idea that has been peculating in my noggin, or jump right into creating an Orenburg shawl next.
Eventually it will all come together for an eBook tutorial with original designs.
Talk to you all soon and have a wonderful rest of January! Stay warm! And please be sure to leave comments and/or suggestions. I always love hearing from you!
