NOT a Christmas Present
Instead of working on Christmas presents I spent the past week and a half playing with that tiny grey ball of cashmere/silk I bought at the yarn tasting. It is my first completed lace-ish project, and I feel like it turned out very well. Especially since I had never, ever blocked anything before. Now I just have four ends to weave in: I should just have 2, but Socrates chewed through the yarn when I was four inches from the end.
So, without further ado, here's the fun stuff:
Yarn: 180m of Hand Maiden 65% Cashmere, 35% Silk
Needles: Clover Bamboo, size 8
Pattern: A Molly original, but based on the Foliage Lace in the Vogue Stitchionary Volume 1
