I know it seems like I'm knitting a ton, but really, I'm cheating by doing quick projects. Also, Logan doesn't nap anymore, so my afternoon sewing time has been converted to afternoon knitting time.
Anyway, I found this beautiful Angora Bamboo yarn on clearance, but they only had two 80 yard skeins. I bought them both, then had to find a pretty project that didn't take much yarn.
Edelweiss neckwarmer by Susanna IC. My Ravelry notes are here. It is a horizontal variation of the classic feather and fan lace pattern, but worked in worsted on size 10 needles, which makes it less lacy, but more warm and snuggly. If you follow Elaine at the Selfish Seamstress, you'll recognize this pattern, as she just finished an utterly stunning version of the traditional pattern worked vertically. In her usual unselfish way, she also provided the pattern on her blog.
I admit that I chose this pattern partly because I wanted to dip my toes into a simple lace pattern, and I had enough yarn. In retrospect, I'm glad I did. I love the way it feels. The yarn is soft and drapey and the lacy pattern gives it a lot of give.
Gretel beret my sister knit me last Christmas!
