Just a few things I’m working on/finished lately.
two three years(!) as a languishing Work In Progress, I finally picked back up this Cloud Bolero. The pattern is no longer available (except via the Internet Wayback Machine) and has been rewritten as Liesl. And while this updated pattern really is far better in layout and ease of construction I just liked the look of the bulkier original better (and the raglan decreases). So I plowed on past the somewhat confusing amount of stitch markers, beyond the point where I had originally given up on it after repeated mistakes. I actually have this one completed now and just need to get finished photos, it was worth sticking with it.
This is just a quick TV-knitting, stash-busting project. Will be a Felted Flower Bowl that I’ve made in a smaller size to be a jewelry holder on my vanity desk. I only hate running a whole laundry load for one little thing to felt (being too lazy to do it by hand). I may have to make another hat to felt with it. See I totally justify my felt hat addiction.
And some tatting! It was kismet finding this cute pattern for Little Owl Earrings for an owl obsessed friend right before her birthday. Made using my tea-stained crochet cotton thread on a size 7 tatting needle.
And a picture of Mr. Floppy Ear, Aejaz – just because.
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Perhaps knit up one of my Heart Rings. :-D
