Sunday 1/24 – BoInk
Tuesday 1/26 – Pixies’s Lady
Thursday & Friday 2/4-2/5 – crocheted lace
So, where have I been, and why so little to show for 2 weeks? I’ve started working for a company called GhostStitchers, who provide stitching services for custom work as well as model stitching. These projects come with deadlines 😉 so I have to put aside my personal stuff to finish in time. I mailed my first project back on Thursday and sat down and gave myself a stitching break, and started crocheting some lace. This is an antique pattern I found on About.com – click the link above to see the pattern. I’m working with a size 10 crochet thread made from bamboo in natural, which as you can see, looks lovely against my jeans. 🙂
As I’m working on this, it seems really wide to me – I prefer a subtle, narrow trim. I keep trying to think how I could cut it in half, and I hope by the time I reach a reasonable length (what is a reasonable length, when you’re making lace with no specific project in mind?) that I’ll figure it out enough to make a skinnier version. There don’t seem to be a lot of patterns for lace online – I found a lovely scalloped one on Kristi’s blog, and as soon as I hear that my TTE2 partner has received her scissor pocket, I’ll post a pic of that lace. It turned out really pretty!
