So a while back I won a random joy prize. My prize was a set of stitchmarkers from Lindsay of The Woolly Seashell of my choice. I received it a little over a week or more ago and finally got some pictures of the beautiful markers! Thank you to SofL and Lindsay for a great WofL even if I didn’t finish a lot of what I started! Also I cast on a new lace project today. The pattern is an exclusive Season of Lace one, this is December’s pattern Belle Nuit by Sivia Harding. The yarn is a slightly itchy knit for me so I’m going to be knitting on it slowly, the yarn is Curious Creek Meru (51% tussah silk and 49 % merino). I’m allergic to the wool content so I won’t be able to wear it, but I couldn’t help but start this shawl with the beautiful purple yarn that came with the kit. You can see that I used one of the markers that Lindsay made as a beginning place marker and the other markers are from one of my favourite etsy store Crimson Orchid.
Oh I also won a random wee lace prize, which was $20 worth of Fiberdancer Designs pattern store! Thank you again and I decided on Stars Over Diamonds Shawl and Daedalus and I can’t wait to get my gift cert so I can start knitting these gorgeous patterns.
