One of the big things for me this year is finishing up some old projects (and starting new ones). I FINALLY finished the Purl Bee's Elisa's Nest Tote. Can I get a Whoo Hoo?! I'm embarrassed to admit that this project took me over a year and a half to finish. And it wasn't because the pattern was hard it was because I didn't want to tackle the handles. They are tediously long. I was super lazy about it and kept making excuses for why I couldn't finish it. Then one day I said, "Enough!" and I got busy. I'm glad I kicked myself into gear. This bag is so handy for carrying my store bought veggies.
The lace pattern reminds me of honeycombs. I used Knit Picks Swish Worsted Yarn in Semolina on straight #7s.
I also finished another Fresco Basket Whip Cowl. I love this knit because it's so pretty and it keeps me on my toes with the lace pattern. I used Lion Wool Yarn in Pearl Gray on DPNs #8.
I am now working on Knitty's Lace Ribbon Scarf. It's such a pretty pattern and probably one I can wear in the spring. Well, that's if I finish it before summer. I've been taking it a wee bit slow. It's a relaxing knit for me so I'm enjoying the time just knitting and meditating on each stitch. I'm using Knit Picks Palette Yarn in Sweet Potato on straight #4s.
I guess this year could be the Year of the Lace for me too. It seems I've been drawn to lacey patterns. Lace makes me happy.
