Project: Sample Lace Leaf
I am embarrassed to admit I cast on for this project on April 25, 2010. Isn’t it a pretty little leaf pattern? I have no idea why, but this was a seriously belabored project for me, despite a decent pattern and GREAT yarn. Oh well. These things happen, right?
Pattern: Plymouth’s Lace Scarf, published in their Ecco Cashmere line. It was a nice enough pattern, but for some reason, we rubbed each other the wrong way, the whole time. Truly, it’s not you, it’s me, I’m sure. Remember, that whole period was one without Mojo…
Yarn: Be still my heart. Plymouth Ecco Cashmere, in color 100. So soft. A real joy to knit with, even without mojo.
As an aside, here’s Plymouth’s photo of the project. I blocked and I fiddled, but I couldn’t get the slipped stitch element to look right. Mine rolled just enough that it lost that pretty scallop. Hrmph.
Verdict: Won’t be doing the pattern again, but the yarn was fabulous. This was done as a shop sample for Dog House Yarns & More, so at least I know where to find more of the yarn!
While I’m mentioning Dog House Yarns & More, I hope some of you are considering the Holiday Knit ‘n Tea on July 3rd. My red shawl and I will be there! What could be better than knitting and tea at one event, other than having lots of friends there too?
One long-term work in progress down, at least two more to go.
