Can you bear it? Missouri Star is posting two days in a row! It just doesn’t get any better than this, does it? Of course, since I’m not participating in the Knitting Olympics, I’ve got all this time on my hands. And I couldn’t wait to show you Snowdrop, who did not disappoint. Before:

Snow1

And after (notice requisite upside down dog):

Snow2

Specs: Pattern – free download from Yarn Harlot. Yarn – Knit Picks Dye Your Own Laceweight handyed by moi with one pack of black cherry Kool-Aid. Needle size – I’ve already forgotten, but I think size 3. I think this one is about as easy as lace gets and would be a great beginner pattern. Placing the solid triange in the back takes some thinking, but you can leave it out. I wanted to highlight my hand dyed yarn (doesn’t that have a great ring to it?).

And this one is for Sandy. This was the view out of my front door a couple of days ago – I think it was the SUN rising!!

  1. Beautiful! That pattern is on my list of potential patterns to use for a shawl to wear to my nephews wedding. Did it get boring to knit with the lace being all the same stitch pattern?

    The cotton or linen does sound interesting except for the sore hands part.
