The L Word

'Mrs Beeton' ---- Pink Kisses

There are so many pretty pictures of Mrs Beeton wrist warmers, each pair's full of personality. I couldn't help trying my fingers on it.

Louisa Harding's Impression and Sublime Kid Mohair used, and I was too lazy to decorate them with beads.

Swinstry Mittens

Pattern from Louisa Harding's 'Winter Muse Landscapes'.

I consider myself a patient person, but still, small projects suit me more, that's why I'm so keen on 'one ball projects' as these mittens. I was a bit worried when I finished the first mitten, as the pattern called for 'one ball', but it looked as if there wasn't enough yarn for the second one. Fortunately, it turned out alright. But DON'T waste any yarn, you know what I mean.

I quite like the 'Impression' yarn, it's so soft, yet changes color in light.

'My So Called Scarf'

A popular pattern from HERE

A wool yarn named 'Maya' used.

I call the stitch 'bamboo leaves', 'Ove and Lucia' says it looks also like chicken footprint, while su.Zen told me the stitch was actually called 'herringbone'.

A Taste Of Lace

A snowfall lazy, lacy, light,
So silent, icy cold, and white.
