It’s taken some time but today my blog’s making it’s debut on my new and very own webspace! W00t! I’m planning on making a website for my more serious works and keep a blog for my hobbies and funstuff! Anyways, at the moment I’m using a template but I’m planning on creating my own layout when I get some time.
Anyways, my ravelry invite finally came in so I’ve been browsing and admiring all the nice patterns there 😀 I got inspired and bought some supernice patterns. I had some nice pictures of the WIP’s but I accidentally erased them 🙁
Here’s the first one by Ilga Leja the designs name is Balsam.
This one’s made with 150 grams of some acrylic yarn I had bought in Iran. I don’t exactly know what kind of yarn it is, I just know it’s not natural fibers.
I also finished a rasta berret from the pattern I bought from Woolly Wormhead called Starburst. I made this berret with 3 or 4 skeins of Drops Eskimo. It’s supersoft and I just love it 🙂
Right now I’m working on the Print O’ the Wave Stole by Eunny Jang.
I bought this superlovely lace yarn from Hipknits. It’s 100g handpainted 70% Baby Alpaca 20%Silk 10%Cashmere. I tried a few sizes, but I didn’t have the 1,75mm recommended in the pattern, so I did some swatches. First one with a 2mm circular needle, then one with the 1,5mm needle.
The 2mm swatch became very big and wasn’t exactly what I hoped it would be, so I frogged it and started again with the 1,5mm. It’s a nice debut for my new lace needles anyway:
