So I was feeling a bit better about the design until I looked at Cross Stitcher magazine's website and saw that they had an ice cream cone design in the magazine this month! Grrr.
So feeling a bit deflated, I decided it was time to try something new.....knitting.
Off I toddled to the local library where I discovered they had a huge selection of knitting books. Knitting seems to be the 'in' thing just now. So I took out a book about Victorian lace knitting....hence the 'jumping in at the deep end' title! It looks awesome....but complicated. So realizing I have to take baby steps, I started making a scarf (got to start somewhere!)
So this is what I bought on Tuesday....
and this is how it looks now....
The yarn or wool (not sure what it should be called) is really fancy and knits up looking like lace. There's only six stitches on the needles!
Here's a close up...
Isn't that fantastic? I can see me making some more of these as Christmas gifts.
So until next time, (when normal, stitchy service will be resumed) happy stitching!
