Lace, lace, lace love lace! Last Feb I decided to knit this lace scarf with only knowing how to knit and purl. It was a challenge and frustrating at moments. I have learned a lot about knitting with this one scarf….mostly patience. In the beginning tearing out my mistakes was all I did so I set it aside an awful lot but was determined to finish. Yesterday I finished my lace scarf ….phew. Pattern is Arches & Columns it’s a free pattern from Crystal Palace Yarns. I used Patons Lacette yarn in Hint of Rose. Measures 9”x53”
Before and after being blocked. The ladies at Cloverhill Yarn Shop in Baltimore or as the locals say B’awlmer helped me with the correct way to block lace.

Thermis Cowl is a pattern I found on Ravelry but you can buy it at KrisKnits. I used Organic Cotton by Blueskyalpacas. I wanted to make something for myself……uggggggg its too big for my freakish small neck..hehhe. So going to make another one a bit smaller. This one will be gifted to my wonderful mother in-law Charmie.

Charlotte Purse is the cutest knitted purse. The pattern can be found in a great book Knitting Little Luxuries by Louisa Harding. I am so impressed with this book. It’s full of wonderful items I look forward to knitting. The yarn used for this purse is one skein of Patons Glittallic in the color Rose Glow. I did make a few small changes in the pattern. I changed the way ribbon closes and a lining was added to the bag.
