Life has been so busy this spring that I've hardly knit a stitch but I got some vintage magazines given to me the other day and came across a knitted doily that I just couldn't pass up. I started this on Saturday:
The other main thing I've been working on is a great big ole square of garter stitch. Okay, it's not a square yet but it's going to be a square. Normally I hate knitting garter stitch but in this hand spun yarn with the movement of colors, it works, I think. The problem is that I've run out of yarn (twice).
I did find some turquoise merino roving at the KY Sheep and Fiber Festival that I've started spinning. I'm wondering about using that for the border and then spinning the browns that I've taken out of the second bobbin of the singles for the original yarn for the edging. I think I'll have to have a think about that. I'm just thinking the solid turquoise would show up the lace knitting so much better and then the brown will ground it all in the edging. We'll have to see.
