Hardly a stitch

Life has been pretty of late and I have had scarcely a chance to knit. I did manage to finish a pair of Dzonba slippers which I started ages ago. I used some leftover Ripples Crafts sock yarn in Primrose.



And I have started on the Eyelet Cardi for my mother. Again I am using Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury but in 8 ply this time. The colour is Periwinkle.



I must confess that I am starting to develop lace withdrawal symptoms and I'm on the verge of stocking stitch overload. But I shall persist and reward myself with some indulgent lace knitting when the cardi is done.

I love those footlets, how cute and pretty. I love the color your knitting your mum's sweater in, what pattern are you knitting?

I'm a bit of the opposite to you right now .... I need some soothing stocking stitch to calm nerves and settle the mind.

The slippers are very pretty and I can understand your lace withdrawal symtoms - it's so addictive, isn't it?
But here on holiday I'm finishing the yarn I used for the Snow Queen: indeed with a little lace scarf!
Photos whe I'm back home.

Lace withdrawal - I prescribe a shawl to cast on ASAP!
