I was a real little busy bee this Winter vacation, and finished a few things, even a Lace Shawl that I started nearly 6 months ago.
This is a Glam Shells Lace shawl that I had been working on for a while, and had put it down and now finally finished it. When I got going again, it was much better. I even added beads to the edge of the shawl. It should inspire me to do more very detailed lace in future.
I completed the shawl I was knitting from Handspun, it knitted to beautifully, and is so very warm and cozy. This is a pattern that I modified and adjusted as I progressed.
And the mini crescent shawl that I knitted for a buddy is also done. It is blocked and ready to be mailed to her. I hope she will like it. I am going to be making more of this shawl, and am thinking about adding beads to the lace edge, the patter lends itself to it very well.
When I was not knitting, I worked on the Mini Bear Anscheri that I was sewing. She turn out pretty cute! I think now she needs a friend, so I will be making another one pretty soon.
And of course, who can resist such a stunning Custom Dye. Pointe Shoes from Hartlam, here in South Africa. I have been very good with my stash, but I could not resist and placed an order for these pretties. I love the colour and want to knit it pretty soon.
