Small Projects (Some are faster than others)



Just a short post so I can show a few shots of Goldregen draped on a form. As you can see, even though there were quite a few rows to this one, it ended up a small scarf because of the needle and thread size. Still, not everyone wants to wear a full shawl and perhaps the small size will make it more tempting to wear. This one took two years to finally complete but not every small lace project I make needs to be so labor intensive.

I have another co-worker leaving but only had a small amount of time to make something for her (promotion rather than retiring). so I knit the Elisa Shawlette by Tiziana Sammuri (her shop name on Ravelry). Knit on US 3 with Suri Elegance yarn in the Misty Morning colorway, it took only 3-4 days of casual knitting to complete and makes a lovely elongated semi-circular scarf that is easy to wear with a suit or casually with jeans wrapped about the shoulders or neck. I have no drape shots of this piece as I have already given it away, but I plan to knit it again so I will get shots then :-)

Stunning, as always! I do love that little Tiziana number--it's so delicate! And Goldregen--well, it doesn't matter how small it is--it's a masterpiece!

Did I put in enough exclamation marks, do you think?!!

They're both beautiful and I like the 'mini' goldenregen.

Lovely gift for your colleague 'moving on' and a pretty colour

Dear Cookie,


Thank you! I try to bring the pretty as often as possible :-)

Dear fleegle,

I really did enjoy making the little shawlette. It was a nice break and made a great gift.

Goldregen. What can I say? I love it and it's just pretty enough to go to one of the nieces :-)

Dear LittleBerry,

Thank you! I'm starting to slow down towards the end of the year so the small projects really help me keep my hand in so I don't forget how to knit lace LOL!

Dear Rosalia,

I'm so glad you think they are elegant. I'm afraid not everything I knit makes it to that level but I think Goldregen really does :-) The shawlette is a wonderful way to give someone a little bit of lace without taking months to knit it.

Dear Knit Picking,

If people don't stop retiring or getting promoted I won't have any lace left in the house LOL!

Such pretty knits! ::gazes at them some more::

Dear Carol,

Thank you! I have to admit that I stared at Goldregen once it was done for quite some time too :-)
