Crescendo – Muted Through the Knitting Fog!

These last few weeks seem to have brought together my creative  efforts of the last few months.

Abbey Lace Fan - Torchon knitted lace - originally designed as a collar by Barbara Abbey.  Painted with Procion dyes.

Abbey Lace Fan – Torchon knitted lace, heavily embellished with beads, size 8/0 – Knit with Zephyr 50%merino/50% tussah silk laceweight – originally designed as a collar by Barbara Abbey. Painted with Procion dyes.

Everything snuck up and then was suddenly done and out there.  My work has been ongoing to such an extent that when this month rolled around the finishing of so much has been a surprise.  The fact that others have noticed my efforts has been a joy!

Tracie hat!

Through it all I have kept on knitting.

Tracie hat is finished.  I love it.  I am going to reknit the cap with a different yarn, and beads, and turn it into a Spring/Summer class.

Twisted I-cords for the straps!

Twisted I-cords for the straps!

It feels like  I am knitting miles of twisted I-cords for the straps for my Riveted Bag.  The cord is about 4 feet long already and it needs to be at least 5 feet so that there is room to shrink.

I can hardly wait to felt the pieces and see what the bag and the twisted cords look like!

It looks like there will be time to resurrect the “Patina project”  that I started last fall!

Happy Knitting
