‘j’ai deux amours…..’

August 11, 2009

currently, i have two projects with which i am madly in love.

truly.

madly.

deeply.

the first is this:

Granny Blanket

yes i know, this is supposed to be a knitting blog but i fell in love with crochet because of helloyarn

plus using noro to crochet. . . .its just a beautiful thing (if you ignore my neighbors’ yard waste bags in the background. ugh!)

don’t worry, i’m still a knitter. i won’t be going over to the dark side. just vacationing there.
(ps the green bag in the photo i did not make, i purchased it from yokoo’s etsy store)

my second big love is this:
Progress
lovely lace knitting. it makes me so happy to look at.

however.

there were many (invisible) mistakes made due to the fact that I was working from my photocopy of the book. this meant that some purl stitches were knitted since the chart demarcates them by slightly shading in the boxes on the chart (i hate my life)

thank heaven for double yarn overs or i would never have caught the mistake in time.

i can’t wait to finish both of these.

well, i’m off to knit

    Aww, have you finished these? I just bought A Gathering of Lace last week and was thinking of tackling this round shawl (haven’t ever done a round shawl!), but have since fallen in love with the Frost Flowers & Leaves pattern…

    I also adore adore adore granny squares, it’s been my go-to pattern for baby blankets, wedding afghans, etc., until I not too long ago discovered the Hemlock Ring blanket, which is my new go-to pattern. I hope your granny square grew on you!
