that I have started something new.
It was one of those times, when yarn, pattern and idea just came together. It is an old Rowan pattern called Prue. The original is in one colour, with that white brim, and long sleeves. But I though my yarn just will be perfect, and keeping the rib and collar (and maybe the sleeve edge) in neutral with the white, and then have the lace part in the variegated. It is a wonderfully soft yarn Ambrosia, and it will fit my purple linen pants I "lived in" this summer. The lace is rather demanding, but I think I got the hang of it. I am more worried when it is time to split and go backwards with this lace. It is sort of "Henley" shaped. The thinking is if I will just keep it stocking stitch (no lace) on the top part (so you do not see through there...) But the pattern has not. Anyhow, it will be no or very short sleeves. It should be for summer. Well, having been in wonderful Poland, Wroclaw last week I cannot help longing for the sun. Sorry for scarse posting. But next time will be in two weeks! I hope to have finished some more exiting knits.
Take care my friends. I am still around. Just slower on the blog..
