With the first spring breezes, I feel the desire to knit light weight items. The store is filling up with bright and beautiful cotton, silk, and bamboo yarns. Spring knitting/crocheting magazines have begun to arrive with lace shawls, shells, and cardigans.
I’ve begun reviving projects I put in long-term parking for the fall/winter season. Here is part of a crocheted vest that I’m designing. The pressure is on because Michelle, Mary and Elizabeth have their yarn already. The yarn is Aslan’s Pima Classico cotton.
I knew exactly where the project was. Unfortuantely I didn’t put my notes or the hook with the project. I hate when that happens. It must be in the proverbial safe place that’s so safe I can’t find it. I had to go through all my crochet books and unravel some of it to figure out what the stitch was AND I had to swatch again. That turned out to be a good thing, I changed to a larger hook.
I’ve been taking this Eyelet Cardigan out of parking and putting it back into parking for 3 years. I think it’s time I finished it. The yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton.
Otherwise I think I’ll do more lace and and some of Not Just Plain Jane’s patterns. I have the yarn for the Trillium Sweater and the Renaissance Poncho.
