Completed Miniature Leaf Lace Curtains...Finally!

I finally finished the second curtain - long overdue.

Miniature Leaf Lace Curtain

This is the first of two lace curtains I'm knitting - well, I've just started the second. It is knit on Addi Turbo size 10 needles, with Grace mercerized cotton. The lace pattern is one from Knitting for Dummies...some of the other curtain patterns I have seemed to be more complicated than I can currently handle, so I opted for something simpler.

The Fog Sweater

This is the first sweater I've knit, since I took up knitting about a year ago. The yarn is Cascade merino, and is very, very soft and warm! The pattern was well-written...and free (it's on Ravelry)!

I've asked my LYS to order me some yarn for my next sweater, so for the next two weeks I get to work on my lace kitchen curtain.

Irish Hiking Scarf in Paton's Forest

This is the same Irish hiking scarf I knit for my grandmother, but in Paton's Forest, which I'll wear myself.

Irish Hiking Scarf

This is the Irish hiking scarf I just finished for my grandmother for her birthday. She's very fond of blue, and really liked the colour. The yarn was Paton's classic merino.
