Lots of Stuff

Currently working on the Ichida Lace project, although I put that down for a little bit to re-organize my entire house so new carpeting can be put down.

I'm also working on some felted bucket hats for women that I plan on selling.

Just finished a spinning project that I can't write about and started a new one using Black Bunny Fibers roving.

Life is busy.

Ichida looks so good, it must be very satisfying to watch it develop.

Your lace projects are so beautiful.

Very beautiful! Looking at it I get images of tropical foliage like for Bird of Paradise plant, of feathers and flight, light wisps of smoke. Absolutely stunning.

Wow, that is amazing. I don't know how you guys keep track of the pattern, it would do me in.

I don't know how joe does it - but I break it down into little teeny bits .....

Joe - since it is St. Patrick's (US celebration if not official St. Day) I will admit your lace is turning me green!!!!

MMario - ambiguity is cultivated, it doesn't happen in a vacuum!

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

High praise indeed, MMario...thanks.

The pattern I'm working from is just a graphic, and there are virtually no repeats, so it just requires vigilant tracking of where I am in the pattern. Fortunately, the background netting gets to be pretty routine, so all I need to remember is the number of 4 stitch repeats is included in a particular row.

Required tools: photocopier that increases the size of a graphic, highlighters, post-its and reading glasses (required for anyone over 45 years old)

Wow, that's my favorite knitted lace I've seen so far. It's so organic and almost free form. It looks as if it grew that way and wasn't knitted at all. Really exceptional.
