Me Made May – Week 1+

Posted in Bobbin Lace, Knitting, Tatting at 3:07 pm by dianelaces

I’m participating in the Me Made May challenge with the Yarns at Yin Hoo podcast.  The first week went pretty well and it was fun.  I looked at my things in a new light.

Friday, May 1 – Rusted Root, knitted in 2009 with Knit Picks Cotlin yarn.  My first attempt at a pullover.


Monday, May 4 – Meadowlark by Amy Swenson, knit in 2014 with Trendsetter Yarns Cash Woole.  It didn’t fit until I lost 50 lbs.  Still could stand to be blocked out some more, but I like it.


Tuesday, May 5 – Starlace Infinity Scarf by Pearl Morgan.  Knit in 2013 with Bijou Basin Ranch Shangri-La that I inherited from my mother-in-law.  She bought the yarn and discovered she doesn’t like knitting with laceweight yarn.  I encourage her to buy more laceweight!


Wednesday, May 6 – a ‘s Gravenmoerse bobbin lace pendant.  Not sure what year I made this, probably 2009.  I get out of the habit of wearing my lace.


Thursday, May 7 – Vintage Vest by Linda Burt.  This was knit in 2010 with Red Heart Sock & Sweater yarn.  I don’t like the goofy thing going on with the notches, but I really like this vest and get a lot of wear from it in the summer.


Friday, May 8 – Tatted Celtic Knot earrings.  Love these!  Wear them all the time.
