My latest project... (I'm imagining a little drum roll here, just work with me, okay?)
This is the finished Queen Anne's Lace from our beloved MMario. And I would just like to state that this pattern is wonderful! It's so nicely written out Mario, thank you for sharing your genius with us. As I stated in the earlier posting regarding this piece, all frustrations and hair ripping accompanied by cussing and scaring small children was from my own mistakes, foibles and other idiotic moves and were in no way related to the pattern itself. Really, I do apologize to the parents of that three year old in the coffee shop. I hope he never uses "Son of a Whore" in polite company. Only in the privacy of you're own house. And do better than I did when my little brother stood up from his toy box and so earnestly informed me that he was "Just F'n Around". Pull you're head out of the room before laughing and try to control the facial expression before correcting their language.
I was going to originally place some African Metal Beads into the outside edge, but upon further pondering I decided that although they do not clash with the yarn, they don't compliment it either which means they would just be beads for beads sake. So I decided to leave them out. Although if I had freshwater pearls with that opalescence they have... those would have complimented nicely and set the edge off beautifully, but no regrets!
The finishing of this project actually brings me to a bit of a knitting hiatus. I have been working these hands every available minute the last couple of months and they're starting to let me know. So I will be putting down the needles for a couple of weeks. Just means more dog and gym time for me.
Now, since I have two more night shifts left to my week, I better call it a day and cuddle in with the furry lot of them for the day. Hope you all have a grand one.
