Vintage Lace

Just finished this vintage lace pattern for my DD. The original pattern is from the book Knit Vintage by M Weston & R Taylor, pub. 2012, London, but is a complete variation using BWM Luxury 4ply in the colour brick. Not an easy pattern but worth the effort and fits her perfectly.

Teddies & Humpties

These are the teddies and humpties that I made for some of the children at Maya's Rest Cottage near Yass, that was one of the charities for the April collection by the K4C group.

Just in time...

Finally completed these two projects that I have been working on for some months, just in time for Christmas. A knitted blanket each for my two grandchildren, Emilia 5 and James 8, each one made from 30 squares with different designs including their names. Used about 1kg of 8ply Luxury wool from BMW for each rug with 4.5mm needles. The tricky part was designing many of the squares to match each child. The finished blankets are 46 inches x 52 inches (111 cm x 132 cm) and squares were joined using a Bickford type seam that was flat on the reverse. The blankets were completed with three rows of crochet using a 4.5mm hook.
