Tutti Frutti ... "ICING"






Pattern: "Icing" by Samantha Roshak
Yarn: Ella Rae 100% Merino Lace in #119 "Wine Cooler" (used about 250m of 400m)
Needles: 3.5mm
Dimensions: 71"L x 11"W
Started: February 5 - 9, 2010

As I mentioned in the previous post, this was a test knit of a new pattern to be released shortly. It's a quick knit, with lots of yo's and k2tog's, which made it fast and easy, but not boring. The perfect TV watching project!

It's unusual shape caused my husband to comment that it looked more like the bottom of a kayak, and therefore would have been more appropriately called "kayak", rather than "icing"! Thanks for taking an interest in my work, dear :)

BTW, did you notice how high my daffodils are in the background of the photos? Everything is at least 6 weeks ahead of normal here ... I was out pruning my roses yesterday and that would typically be a March task. It's been very mild, with some sunny days and we're very grateful! Typically, February is my least favourite month in B.C., but this one is proving to be an anomaly, and happily so!

Now, to get back to my Tea Leaves Cardigan and get it completed, so I can start my Olympics project, which is yet to be determined ... I'm dithering between the Wedgewood Blouse in a dark burgandy cotton and the Gail Shawl in Handmaiden sea silk -- Nova Scotia colourway ... hmmm.

It looks perfect. Nice and lacy. I think that this could go dressy or casual. You did a great job.

God bless.
