|Candy Cane-watercolor 5X7|
For Christmas presents this year I decided to try my hand at knitting lace. Oh my. To make it fair to the lady recipients I decided to use the same type of yarn for the same lacy shawl/scarf, but in different colors, except the one I had already started in a different pattern. It's going to Alaska and will be warmer, so it's OK.
This all involved a lot of do-overs, believe me. An odd result is that now, suddenly I have long nails. All I can figure is that my hands haven't been in as much water or chemicals and I've had to keep the nails smooth to avoid snagging the thin yarn. I guess.
It does not, however, make it easy to type.
Now I've got to get to the post office as soon as the last one I'm blocking is dry and get them on their way! There is no hope for the one going to New Zealand to get there in time, but it's summer there anyway.
Merry Christmas to all!!
