Muir is finished. I must thank Romi for such a wonderful free pattern.
Here is a picture along with the dress I am planning on wearing to my friends wedding next weekend. Not a bad match eh?
And, as ever, I can never resist a little photo collage.
The sun came out so I took the chance to get some photos in the sunshine.
The ones with the blue background are taken with Muir spread across the double bed, and the ones at the bottom are pre-blocking.
Pattern: Muir from Knitty
Yarn: Posh Yarn Eva 2 ply in Hot Pink.
Needles: 4mm Addi Lace Turbos
Started: 5th June 2008
Finished: 8th July 2008
Comments: I did two repeats wide and 12 repeats long of the lace chart and it measures 60cm x 180cm - a perfect length for me. I left out the picots down the edge too. I had about 15g of Eva left over, so I could have managed the full 13 or maybe even 14 repeats long but I felt it was long enough. It was a joy to knit, and I had most of the pattern memorised after repeat 3 or 4.
Now I'm wondering what lace to knit next! Any thoughts? In my Ravelry queue are Hanami, Laminaria, Matilda, Luna Moth and Forest Canopy
I need to get on with some baby knitting too. Counting up I realise there are now 7 babies due to my friends before the end of the year. So I'm thinking this Alphabet blanket by Debbie Bliss (Ravelry Link) might quench my thirst for lace and make an amazing present.
