Haruni in action


Here’s one pic of my latest lace creation, the Haruni, being worn. Click the picture to see more images on my flickr account. My hubby snapped a few shots for me 🙂 Can you tell that I’m about half way in to baking a bun in my oven?? It is going by so fast this time!

Stay tuned for upcoming picks of the monster family. I finished the mommy and baby monster and started the kid monster, but it is turning out a little too big. So, my son told me to turn it into a Grammy monster… So that’s what I’m going to do. A little extra knitting is no problem right? It will actually complete our household if I make a Grammy one too. I figure these monsters will be good role playing toys for him to prep him for a sibling.

Anyhow, off to bed for me. I’m writing this blog with my hubby’s shiny new iPad that I got him for fathers day. It’s a fun toy, but I don’t think I will use it for future posts… Too hard to get all the links I want and I also can’t use all of bloggers compose features and a little hard to type with. Good nite all & happy dads day!

A Lace Shawl

First lace shawl

For the HaruniFirst of all I never thought I would make a lace shawl. It’s just not my style, until I laid my eyes on the the Haruni pattern and it is free!  It is just too beautiful not to make, even though I can’t picture myself wearing it ever.  And I thought that I would never pick up another lace project after the lace scarf that I made, and re-made, and re-made for my dear friend.  But, I decided to do the unthinkable and try lace again.  I found this irrisistable colorway in Malabrigo yarn.

It is slow going for me, but I’m making progress.  I’m almost to chart B.  So far it has been smooth sailing.  The only problem is that, as beautiful as the yarn is, I probably shouldn’t have chosen a verigated colorway.  The changing colors are competing with the lace pattern.  I’m not turning back now, but if I ever do lace again, I will keep this in mind when choosing my yarn.

One last thing, sorry for the lack of blogs.  I’ve been out of sorts lately… should be getting back to myself in a few weeks I hope!
