Learning Success!

As promised, since I was able to learn how to do the Crochet Broomstick Ripple Lace stitch based on a tip from a blog reader, I created an English language tutorial for the stitch and put it on YouTube.



Continued Fascination

I have honestly never gotten over the fascination of being able to create fabric with needles and yarn.  To this day, I continue to be enthralled by how I'm able to not only create fabric, but also create fabrics of different density, drape and laciness.

I don't think I'll ever not think that is an amazing thing.

The latest stitch, demonstrated in the tutorial was one of those stitches that I could almost have figured out if I put enough time and energy into it.  Fortunately, watching the Turkish (?) video gave me all I needed and also gave me some great tips on how to work broomstick lace in general.

I mention it in the video, but if anyone has any questions on the stitch pattern, try and put the question in YouTube comments, so that all questions and answers can be kept in one place.


Current Knitting/Crochet

I finished the first Broomstick Ripple Lace Scarf using the newfound technique.





I'm thinking I'll block this scarf a bit bigger, but I'm not sure how the percentage of nylon in the yarn will react to any blocking, so I'll start off very gently.

I also finally finished the bottom border of the Logo Blanket.


Finn insisted on helping with this photo shoot...he's so helpful for showing perspective/size of the blanket.

I plan on picking up the stitches for the top border soon, because if I don't do it soon, it will never get done.  I know my failings as a person and how to get around them.
