|Mexican Lace insert. See the Aztec Eagles?|
If I'd taken the time to blog in June, I'd have posted photos of all the sewing I've done, mostly for my vacation wardrobe. But vacation starts on Friday--Yippeeeee!!!--and that's all done.
All I want to do is lace.
|not my favorite...|
A couple of months ago, I finished Matt's cabled sweater, just in time to send it to him for his birthday, and my mother said she wanted a sweater, but it had to be Fair Isle. So I obsessed about Fair Isle for a while, bought books, made false starts, and finally settled on making one for me first to see if I could do it.
Well, that's just too hot to hold in my hands, and boy! Does it take every cell of concentration my brain can give! I ain't got time for that! And I can't remember exactly what happened, maybe I just moved a pile of knitting and the lace knitting bag appeared and I thought, hmmm, I'll do that for a minute...
