Well, I decided that it was time to design something besides felted bags. (Although I finished up the first prototype of my most recent bag and it's hitting the washing machine later today!) Here's is a swatch of a lace pattern I drew up over the weekend. My plan is to make a scarf with the KSH using this lace pattern. If successful, I may even print up the pattern. Here's another photo of the lace. . .
I just worked up the swatch in some left over sock yarn and gave it a quick blocking last night so that I could actually see the pattern. Tell me what you think. Pete said he liked it, but he's my husband so he's not exactly unbiased.
In other news, we made a trip to IKEA this past weekend and I got this cute lamp for my office:
My husband is mostly Swedish (as opposed to me -- German, Irish, English, Norwegian, and bits of others) and I've grown to love all things swedish. Isn't the little bird adorable? Maybe I'll try to get together a post on Swedish decorative arts sometime so you can see a little of why I like it so much!
