The beauty of lace

15 Comments

I had to work today so my daughter kindly took these photographs of the two lace scarves I finished this week.  She’s done a fabulous job!

This is Andy.  My own design, using Flagstaff Alpaca’s DK weight 100% alpaca:

It’s called Andy in honour of Andy Nailard, the owner of Flagstaff Alpacas.

It’s knitted in the Lavender Prism colourway, on 4.5mm needles.  I’ll release the free pattern soon – just have to write it up.

Also, I finished version two of the Garden City Scarf:

Don’t you think the DK weight yarn makes the lace that much more defined?

There’s something quite magical about lace.  It makes my heart leap.  One of the great things about this pattern is that it’s so simple and quick to knit.

Yarn:  Treliske Organic DK/8 ply, 100% merino in natural cream.

Tomorrow, I bring you news of a new New Zealand yarn that has just been released… it’s very, very exciting.  Shhhhh!

  7. Let your daughter know that her pictures are amazing. The first photo of the Garden City Scarf in particular stands out. It could easily be in a knitting magazine. I think you should see if the designer would like to use the photo to promote the scarf. It is that lovely.

  8. Okay so eenie, meenie, minie mo for me now to try and choose from. Both are just gorgeous:-)

  9. Your daughter did a great job with the photos and you did a fantastic job with both the projects
