Thanks for the encouragement - I wasn't fishing for compliments. Was I? Glargh!
I've frogged the Trellis Fence Scarf - I couldn't bear the mistakes shouting at me. I've started Swallowtail instead. And the pattern suits the mini Handmaiden yarn so much better, I'm really getting into a rhythm - which is how lace knitting should be, I guess. I can see where I'm at with the budding lace repeat so it's easier to tink if necessary. But I've put in a lifeline this time, just in case.
I WILL revisit the trellis scarf pattern one day, but with a finer lace weight yarn.
Meanwhile I've finished another BSJ - this time in pinks and purples, in Lang 'Silkdream' which is wonderfully soft - but so much more expensive now. Part of its attraction was its very reasonable price - its now not much more cheaper than other 'designer' yarns. This BSJ is paying for the course of acupuncture a local vet gave Tilly.
I've also finished spinning the Gotland - only got 4 small balls weighing 70g, which won't be enough for CandyPi, so I'm going to stripe it with Maylin's purple dyed angora goat fleece - and I've spun up my first chunky 25g of that.This picture of a golden hare was to compensate for not having any pics of knitting originally - I was playing with collage - it's so much fun to mess about with glue and bits of paper and gold leaf! The quote is from a Ted Hughes poem. The picture of the golden hare in the moonlight came first, but the quote seemed apt.
"The Big-eyed, up eared hare I hold is solid flame of living gold..."
