This is what I've got on my knitting needles at the moment. It's a waistcoat for Marmee. It's gorgeous. I'm quite in love with it, so I'll have to make myself one next! Check it out on Ravelry. I had some gauge issues with this one, so I'm glad to have made it past the swatch!
Do you like my stitch markers? They are super luxe. A treat to myself from HeyButtons on Etsy. I do love them, they are semi precious stones! You can see one of the Lepidolite ones which are purple. But I also have green Dragons Blood Jasper (with red lines running through it!) and red Crab Fire Agate. Don't they have the most amazing names? I often thread a few on a very long silver chain and wear them as a necklace :)
I've been learning to knit lace (more about that below) and the little lace leaves have been ideal to get my confidence up. I think I have done enough repeats to have memorised how to knit a leaf now. Yay!
Back to the real lace project! This is the progress on the lace for Mimi's hat. It's taking shape. I must admit I'm finding such fine lace hard going though. I only manage about 4 rows and then I go cross eyed! I love the results so I will persevere.
I would like to incorporate some feathers, but not sure how right now... By the way, the hat base is from SquirlGirl Millinery Supplies on Etsy.
Half way done! Yummy.
