Lacy Days....

The thing with me and blogging is either seem to have nothing to say or everything to say..... no happy medium so to speak... Anyway yesterday and last night I had a real lace day :)

For those of you who were kind enough to leave me positive comments on my adventures into designing my 1st lace stole thank you I found them very encouraging... but please feel free to leave constructive criticism too.....

Anyway here is the complete pattern repeat knitted up.... I am now going to repeat the motif again and then decide if I do or don't want space between the rows of motifs, I am happy with the motifs sitting next to each other......


After telling you about the Pippa bag fiasco the other day I did cast on this last night. So this is now my intrim knit between Pink Lemon Twist Mystery Stole and Mums' VLT Beginner stole.... and before you ask yes I did complete Clue 3 last night before starting..... I think my productivity yesterday came from lack of productivity last week.....

This actually was the first mystery stole that I joined back in May, but by the time I had found it and then organized my yarn from the States the last clue was being started.... so here's what this is going to be when it grows up, Midsummer by the Goddess Knits. I am using "Classic" from Yarn Treehouse; its 100% wool and is quite springy to knit with, the pattern called for 5.0mm needles but I preferred the look with my 4.5mm Knit Picks Options :) it's actually going to be a gift for my goddaughter Sarah for her Christening in September.

The photo shows me part way through what was Clue 1


And just to prove that I didn't cast on before finishing clue 3 here you go, I just love knitting with Zephyr :o))))))))))))))) but I really do not have a clue what the theme is going to be...


And last, but not least (no I didn't manage any of this yesterday) an update of were I'm at with the VLT, I know you can't see the stitch patterns (I am halfway so just repeating the patterns in reverse order) but I can't believe how big its getting. I really hadn't noticed as most of the time it's screwed up on my knee in ball....


So all in all a very enjoyable Lace day yesterday......

Well, one gorgeous thing after another. You are talented, my dear!

And no, I didn't leave the corn bunting on purpose. I have so much metal implanted in various parts of my body that it takes forever to get through security. And then I was late for the plane and just whizzed out of there, leaving the poor bunting to the tender mercies of TSA. RIP.

Are you doing the next Goddess Mystery?

I found it Friday when I was having a mooch... but with the hanami and sockapalooza to finish... and MS3 - I haven't registered yet...

but for $4.50... it seems far to tempting not to!!!

very lacey indeed! :)
i'm loving your pattern so far. and i think you're right about not having a space between the pattern blocks.
