I have been knitting a Lace Stole from Lion Brand using their Cotton Ease in Taupe and it is soft and has a very nice drape. I will at some future time provide a picture as this lovely young lady is obviously not me! The stole really does look like the picture of it though. The instructions were written out so I made a chart to follow and that worked like a dream. I also added stitch markers and presto-I was knitting lace.
I am still slogging away on my cable afghan made from the Aran yarn I brought back from Ireland. It is large now and it really needs to be cool weather to have all those reversible cables sitting in my lap. I am also working on a sweet pair of pedicure socks for my daughter. She can wear them when she goes to have her little tootsies done in the cold weather. I am making them in Lion Brand Micro Spun and they are so soft. Pictures to follow. I am using yarns from my stash as I am trying not to buy any new yarn right now.
I want to shout out to all my friends that have emailed me and asked where I was....thanks. A big thanks to Hope and Cindy for being such great blog pals and encouraging me to come back.
I have missed everyone and hope to visit all of you so we can start blogging together again.
