:: On my sticks ::
Just a quick checking in to let you all know what I've been up to.
Well, let's just say that lately my hookies have been a bit abandoned.
For some years now I have been trying to learn how to knit. I've picked up my needles, started a project, and after lots of head scratching frustration I've taken everything apart and gone back to my hooks. Every once in a while I have successfully completed a scarf or two. I've even attempted and successfully completed a few baby kimonos for little Miss. Ireland. (miracles do happen).
But recently I've wanted to go beyond the "no brainer" projects and try my hand at some simple lace, and knitting in the round.
Well, the round isn't so bad, but the lace knitting, I think I've lost a significant amount of hair in the process of undoing rows and rows just because I missed a yarn over or two and things didn't add up at the end of a row.
Well, I have since finished the lacy looking thingy. And I'm almost done with the one on the round needles. I will share these next week.
For now, please do have yourself a great weekend. Many hugs and kisses to all. :)
