Happy Wednesday! I’m pleased to report I survived my Monday, and by the looks of it, Tuesday as well. Hip hip hooray me!
Even better, I have a real beauty to show you guys today! Thanks to a wonderful soul in my knitting circle with a healthy yarn stash, I scored the extra skein of zarina wool I needed to finish the lace on my haruni. Yay! Cheers to Shawna, who just had a baby boy too! Love me some newborn snuggles even more than a new skein of prized wool. I might have popped an egg just by holding the wee fella 😉
…how I love babies, let me count the ways! Thankfully, my own three darlings quickly reminded me how much I love sleep. And closing the bathroom door. And eating with two hands. But…but… I lurve
babies sleep! If I tell myself that enough, it might come true ;).
Ok, enough talk of sweet sweet adorable, yummy smelling, warm snuggling bodied babies. No more! (I might need an intervention….)
Wool, wool! Concentrate on the wool! Ok, quick, my haruni, yes…here it is!
Ain’t she a beaut Clark? (Name that movie!)
The lace makes my knees week. Just…boom. Down I go
The cast off was surprisingly unique, and put the finishing touches on the lace
I adore how the leaves are shaped and have the lace between. Just glorious design, how can this be a free pattern?
Isn’t it fabulous?! This one is going to be hard to let go
My haruni was knit in 4 mm needles, with zarina sock wool. Glorious stuff. I followed knittimo’s modifications to make an elongated stockinette body before jumping onto chart B for the leaf petals. Brilliant mod if I do say so myself.
And one more picture for the road. Cause…damn.
