New Yarn

I am in possession of a hank of yarn from Lorna's Laces Limited Edition for June 2011. Colorway is Unlimited Possibilities. The colors are so vibrant and just calls out or should I say shout? What do I make out of this? It is far too beautiful for socks. I'm undecided. Here's a picture of the yarn in question.
Available from Jimmy Beans Wool. Here's a link :

Lacy Farinelli Gloves

Another finished object from last year. Fingerless Farinelli Gloves by Ysolda Teague. Appeared in the Twist Collective Winter 2009 edition. This was a challenging project for me. I think this was my first attempt at a real lacy pattern.
And of course, I absolutely adore wearing them.

Colourful Socks

This is one of the latest finished objects. A pair of socks, made in the eyelet pattern. Taiyo yarn from Noro, a blend of wool, cotton, silk and nylon. The colours are exquisite.

Yep, sock knitting is definitely addictive!

Awake....

My blogging mind went on a long hibernation coinciding with the Wisconsin winter. Now that spring is here, I hope to keep this up more frequently. But I did manage to complete a few projects in the last few months. Here is one of my favourites. The Lacy-Leaves Tunic designed by Lorna Miser. It was published in the September issue of Creative Knitting.
