Gift Idea #10
This lacy pattern is simple but remarkably beautiful on a simple ball ornament. With pearl seed beads and a bit of linen, you can create a classy gift in a short time. The pattern is relatively simple if you are accustomed to lace knitting but easy to catch on if you aren’t.
I have tried to keep up with everything, and knitting hasn’t been a top priority. Since, I finished the Felted Heating Pad, I’ve been a little stuck. I want to make a lacy scarf with a very fine yarn, but I it is not easy. I have to try to memorize the eyelet pattern so I don’t mess it up to severely.
On my way home, I stopped by the library and to my surprise- grabbed Stitch ‘n Bitch Crochet, The Happy Hooker. And no- I haven’t found a new way to support my yarn addiction. I can crochet, but not well. When I was a little girl my mother tried to teach me, and I refused to listen to her. She went away for the weekend and when she returned, I had crocheted a pair of slippers. I can make many things, as long as they aren’t square and don’t require a pattern. This weekend’s yarn goal will be to learn the basics of crochet. I’ll report back to you soon.
