Weekend of Lace

Remember this post?  Well, the gal who gave me a discount on roving as well as a bunch of free rovings agreed to let me spin one up for her.  It has been on the back burner as I left on vacation soon after I received the rovings and life has been a bit insane since then.  I did finally start her 2 ply laceweight, and I am now more than halfway through.  It should be done sometime this week so that it doesn’t conflict with the large conference I have to host here next week.  I tell ya, this sanguine gryphon roving is just as gorgeous as it can be!  Richly colored and very saturated, and the silk just makes it shine so much!  I guess 35% silk will do that.  This colorway is “Kate’s Beach” and I just happen to have 2 more in different colors left in my stash.  This one though is truly gorgeous because of the coppery browns in it.  I can’t wait to see it finished!

In knitting, I am working on my MS4, and it is going really well.  I am currently on clue 3 and the part I am working on is lacking beads, so it is moving a bit quicker now.  Keep in mind, as you see this, that I have 2 of these exactly the same.  So though it might not look like that much, double it!  I think I will be much more inspired to finish a symetrical stole if I do both halves at once.  You know, because of my distraction problems.

I am particularly fascinated by the scalloped edges.  I’ve never done them before and I can’t wait to see what they will look like when I am blocking it.  Also, any guesses on a theme???

  1. Shells, that lace weight is most excellent 🙂 Barron keeps asking me when I’m going to get bitten by the spinning bug, but for now I’m happy just to watch you!

    I’m loving MS4. I don’t know what to think about the theme. The motifs look kind of viney to me, maybe with flower buds at the top (rotate yours 180 degrees).
