Lace One-Skein Wonders
101 Projects Celebrating the Possibilities of Lace
I was fortunate enough to get a review copy, and I am so happy I did!
Confession: I love yarn. Love. It. All sorts and types and colours and sizes. All the yummy without the calories! So, when I see something I can’t resist, well, I have to have at least one skein, right? But then, what do I do with all these little yummys?
Just what I always wanted. My own little
bunny rabbit. (skein of luscious yarn). I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him… (Hugo the Abominable Snowman from Looney Toons)
Judith’s lovely book has 101 projects – 101!!! Yippee skippee! Well, that will at least take up part of my single skein stash! LOL
I am going to make Kim Whelan’s Etta Hat first. A bit of a slouch (which I love) with just a bit of lace. Kim used 245 yards of Brown Sheep Company Nature Spun Worsted Weight. I am going to make it in Lotus Pink or Fuscia, yum! Mitts and the Violeta Cowl, and I am ready for winter. Well, of course, got to add socks, too! I have to make the Travel Worthy Mitts, I have a beautiful ball of cashmere I have been petting for quite a while! Well, I actually have two, so the other may go into the Three Button Baby Sweater. I don’t know anyone with a baby, but it is just So. Darn. CUTE!
There are baby things and and scarves, cowls and scarves and stoles, accessories, and even sweet little things for the house.
You have to have this book when it comes out! I am already pulling skeins from my stash and matching them to the items I want to make. How cool is that? And the lace patterns are beautiful, too. I always want to try new lace and cable patterns. These little jewels are the perfect way to try things out without diving into a whole sweater.
It’s coming soon – the publication date is September 10!!! Click the cover photo to preorder!
