beginning at the end…

I’ve been thinking about starting this blog for a long time, trying to find exactly the right time to do it. In the end, I think it’s important to just jump in and start. So I am!

Tuscany unblocked

This is Amy Singer’s Tuscany Shawl in Handmaiden Silken. I’ve actually loved even before I knew fully what it looked like. A simple shawl with a lace pattern that’s not too fussy. The pattern was easy to memorize, yet kept my interest throughout…not an easy thing to do and with the amount of time I spend on public transit, that’s becoming a deciding factor in how I choose my patterns. And when I first saw the yarn, the colour just glowed. The shawl’s since been blocked and has held the blocking very nicely. Better photos soon…
