Good morning. I still have the linen towel in progress and even though I worked on it, it doesn't look any different. Hopefully I'll finish it in September.
I've started a new lace project - actually my own design for a beaded scarf - you know, one that you loop around your neck more for fashion than anything. The middle section could be widened to make it a stole. It actually is a hard pattern and I've had to rip out a lot. The edging is a 16 row repeat and this is pretty close to one full repeat. I'm aiming for three completed repeats and then I'll write up the pattern. Hard to see at this stage but I like the khaki color of the yarn against the blue beads - I wanted beads that reminded me of denim.
The other exciting thing is that my latest yarn samples arrived yesterday for the final swatching on the Aran sweater. The darker one here is really a steel blue and the lighter one is actually much lighter than it shows here. But I need to finish the lace sample first! This is what you tell yourself when you know that you probably won't do that at all.
It is Wednesday again. Head over to Tami's to check out all the great fiber things!
