I haven’t blogged for a while as work and study have been very busy lately. In my precious down time I have been knitting and tatting. Below are pictures of a knitted owl hat, that I reworked 3 times before it looked right. It is still a little bit small for me, so might be washed and re-gifted to a lucky teen. I will scale up the pattern as I quite enjoyed knitting it.
I also made Miranda’s ice crystal snowflake from some beautiful Alenalea Rako thread. There was enough challenge that I enjoyed making it. It took just under 12m of size 40 thread…really lovely. *Update: http://tattingfool.blogspot.com.au/p/my-tatting-patterns.html this is the link to the free pattern page at Miranda’s blog- tatting fool, thanks Miranda for sharing such a beautiful pattern.
Speaking of Alenalea…she has also been busy creating a new pattern which I test tatted for her, of a 3D christmas tree ornament/ earrings. As usual, it is a very clever design! I hope to blog more about this experience soon.
Until next time
