The Lacy Scarf

Categories: Knitting.

I recently finished this lovely lacy scarf pattern. This was a free pattern from The Robbins Nest in Brighton, Ontario which was one of the stores participating in the South Eastern Ontario yarn crawl this past spring. The yarn was lovely and soft, diamond SELECT Indus Valley in shades of mauve and teal. I had started this pattern in late May and even through it was an easy two row pattern to remember I was only knitting a few rows at a time as I needed a laser treatment to clear a cloudy lens so work was limited.

I’ve had a few projects on the go, and the going has been slow. About 4 years ago I had cataract surgery and what an improvement it made.

Categories: Crochet.

I’m taking part in the Southeastern Ontario Yarn Crawl and one of the challenges was to create a project bag. I decided to create one based on my circle bag but on a bit smaller scale. So out came the bag full of little balls of leftover yarn from socks and fingerless mitts. When I look at the bag I can remember all the different patterns made with the yarn. I always like to line my bags and as in the circle bag I started with the lining to have a base to fasten the circles to. I also wanted
