Unst update:

I'm smitten with this project now! Just completed 5 repeats and have 5 to go! When I get up extra early without the alarm to sneak down and work a few rows before I start my day, I know I'm really loving it! I even managed to get Yuki to model with it. Everyone else was rolling their eyes and I wasn't even asking them to help hold or wear anything. :)

Ever feel cursed?

I've been wanting to make the Alpine Knit Scarf from VLT page 36 for my SIL Poohla for Christmas. She likes lavendar and I had Zephyr all ready to go. Now, I love Zephyr - merino and silk, soft, little bit of shine, makes beautiful fabric - and used it for many shawls - including Leaf and Trellis. For some reason this one feels different and is not cooperating. I've started and restarted at least 3 times with no success. I've decided to use Cashwool instead. Hopefully the curse will be broken. :)

Double Lily

I don't know what it's real name is, but it finally bloomed! See how it's a lily in a lily? Mom gave me these and they're doing better at my house than hers. I love how vibrant and happy they look.

Thanks to everyone for believing Unst would get better! It's funny how everyone is more confident in my ability than I am! ;) At least I'm determined! And using a lifeline, counting, focused and smitten! :)

Have a good week! m :)

Your Unst is coming along beautifully! Something about that center pattern always draws my eyes to it.

The Unst is so pretty! Did I miss where the pattern came from?

Those are lovely lilies, I don't think I've seen those before.

Your work is beautiful.

I'm sure you know by now of my struggles with the VLT Spider Shawl, but it seems to have taken on a life of it's own.
