Lovely Simple Lace Finished

Took it off the block and here it is. She is wearing it today when we go out. She would not model it so I've got it on on the picture. If you have never tried lace it is about as easy as it gets. Pattern was posted earlier. Give it a try! JRob

Lovely Simple Lace Being Blocked

I've completed the lovely simple lace spring scarf I've been working on. (See previous post on same title for pattern). Silk and cashmere - lovely fibre with a great feel. Soft and light weight. I blocked it today and it is drying. It will be off the rack tomorrow and I'll get a finished picture then. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I put a new scarf on the needles.

WORKS IN PROGRESS

So, what are you guys working on this weekend? I have two things currently on the needles that I'm working on. One is another pair of socks for my friend Mark. I think I like this yarn better than the yarn I used for the other pair I knit for him. The other thing I'm working on is a hat in left-over sock weight yarn.

Simple Cowl

You can tell when I am homebound because of snow and cold. I knit like a madman! I made a cowl out of a Berroco yarn similar to the scarf I made. It's a bulkier weight, so I used US10 needles and, again like the scarf, I simply did a 2x2 rib. Ken, I used the miraculous bind off you mentioned and it worked well.

fixing mistakes in lace?

Somewhere, in the last week, I read an article, with great pictures, of how someone dropped stitches and re-knitted row by row using coloured pins for each row.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Can't find the article.

"Daniel" and extra large Fair Isle Hat

A friend of mine loves acrylic yarn hats. I only make hats for him as it is a fun venue and I get to play with different synthetic yarns, specifically acrylics. I make hats for him and he does appreciates them a lot. This pattern is my own, "Daniel" it is brought up to 152 sts on worsted weight Paton's Canadiana.
