I'm into these skinny lace scarves. They are great for using up single skeins in my stash and I'm learning a great deal on what fibers work for what projects.

I wanted this to be more special then it is. It's knit in Elsebeth Lavold's Hempathy which is a Hemp/cotton/modal (rayon) and it feels like packing string.

This is an easy, fast and fun pattern. It doesn't take a lot of yarn and it's a great travel project. I like it mostly because it's basic and not fussy at all. It was knit in Knit One Crochet Two Linus, Oak on #8 needles.

I am currently working on a new shawl - the first of my own design or actually composition since I'm just putting together different patterns. It has has a border pattern of mini chevrons and then transitions in to the Pointed Stripe pattern.

For Chirstmas I gave my husband two hanks of Cascade 220 tweed - does he knit? No. Our deal was that everything we gave each other would be something we could both enjoy.

More stuff from my fascinating Christmas gift. The booklet is titled "Knitting Knowledge" and it was published in 1943. These are called open mesh stitches and I find them very interesting.

It's called "Pointed Stripe" and the directions go like this:
