Nothing like waking up to a bit of snow on the ground, and temperatures so cold, you can see the ground glisten. I love winter, but only when viewed from the inside of my warm house. A place I nest daily to complete new projects, sew a little, read a little, and just be.
Not much on the agenda today, though a peruse through cupcake recipes to find the perfect one for my granddaughter’s 5th birthday party. Gosh, creating yet again…how much fun is this?
As far as creating a new project…yes, I have a lace scarf in the “to design” pile. Knit Picks, yet again, will (hopefully) love this new design. Lace is something that make me happy to knit; it’s fun, different, yet a challenge.
|Ripples and Lace-My design (not newest though)|
“Lace is an openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by machine or by hand. The holes can be formed via removal of threads or cloth from a previously woven fabric, but more often open spaces are created as part of the lace fabric. Lace-making is an ancient craft. True lace was not made until the late 15th and early 16th centuries. A true lace is created when a thread is looped, twisted or braided to other threads independently from a backing fabric.”
Have you done lace? It can be as simple as using a worsted weight yarn or you can find the lace weight yarn, which is so very fine to work with, but so very elegant when it’s complete.
So, what will you create today? Cupcakes? Knitted project? Maybe you crochet?
Whatever your passion, make today a time for creating…
As always, Knit on…
