Not surprisingly, I’ve got more lacework in progress to show you this week – a scarf and a shawl.
The shawl is the Aeolian and it is going to be my Maid of Honor’s gift (the only one of the four gift shawls to have beads). I’ve finished the transition chart and I’ll be starting the final agave chart soon. I’m still figuring out the best way for me to do nupps. The first row of them was the very last row in the transition chart, and I made them way too tight.
Beads are size 8/0 seed beads from beadwrangler, #254. They are way too small for the yarn and it’s difficult to string the beads, but I have a ton of them, the colors are perfect, and I wasn’t buyin’ more beads!
The other project is sort of an aside thing. I wanted to use up the rest of my palette from my Summer Mystery Shawlette, so I opened up my Harmony Guides Lace & Eyelets book, picked a pattern, and went to down. It’s the one on page 220 – I believe it is called the Eyelet Lace Fan Panel or something. I just gave it some border stitches. I’m doing it on a huge needle. I think it looks okay despite that.
By the by, are we allowed to post up patterns when the stitch for it comes from a book? Other people have used stitches from books for patterns, but I want to be sure. I intend to chart this one since it’s only written out in the book.
