~WIP Wednesday~

I'm back in the "saddle" again! Yeehaw! ;-)

It wasn't lack of yarn that kept me from knitting. Perhaps I just needed a little break from the needles? I don't know, but I do know that I am thoroughly enjoying my project!

A year and a half ago, I started this project:



There were several things that went wrong: first of all, the yarn was not what the pattern called for. It really wasn't looking all that great. Secondly, I repeated the pattern wrong, and when I discovered that, I ripped out the whole project.

Last year on my birthday, I purchased the correct lace yarn (a mohair yarn) for this project. I didn't get around to starting it until a few weeks ago, and I had trouble starting it.

So finally last week I sat down, determined that this was going to work! And it is:




I love it! I'm glad I stuck with it!!!

How beautiful! That is what I miss about crocheting -- you can't make such exquisite things.

Sue - it is from a magazine, actually. Interweave's Knitting magazine, not sure which issue.
