I knit every day but for the last few weeks, I have not been able to finish off any projects. I think I just have too many wips & should just work on one & finish one at a time. But there are just too many distractions. Since I have no FOs to show, I will show Lydia's.
Lydia just had 2 weeks of school holidays & she loves to knit during this period for relaxation & she finished 2 projects .......
..... a cowl as she wanted something soft & thick & warm around the neck as the mornings have been very cold. She picked Zen Yarn Garden cashmere/merino sock yarn & with 4.5mm, cast on 200+ stitches, join in the round, knit 1 round, purl 1 round until she ran out of yarn.
I think she did a great job as the cowl is so warm & soft. It's long enough (46") to go round the neck twice.
Then she decided that she wanted to try lace & asked for a simple lace pattern. I did a search on ravelry & found this pattern.
This is an amazing pattern & a great introduction to lace as it's only 1 row of pattern & you just keep repeating it. Lydia used a 3.5mm needle as she was knitting with lace weight - Yarn & Kisses Blue Club.
I love the look of this lace & I think I may be stealing this scarf when she's not using it.
I think I better put a lock on my stash as at the rate that she is knitting, I will be running out of stash. Thank goodness, she is back to school now !
