Sunshine Makes me Happy!!

Yeah for the first campfire of the season


I finished Luna Regina after several months...almost a full year of work..primarily because I had a short attention span. The cats helped block it to make sure I did ok; that's Lucky. I bought the blocking wires from KnitPicks http://www.knitpicks.com/Knitting.cfm. They also had a nice tutorial I just checked out to see. Common sense really but a nice resource. They were really fast at sending it out as well!


Tatting: Back burnered the doily "Cornelia" from Iris Niebach but will start it up again with the same thread because you all told me it looked ok in the vari-black! I will obey the "peeps" 'cause you all know best!!

Look at this edging...Isn't it grreat! I love the Coron 120 (Japanese) and this is Fiordaliso http://lacis.com/catalog/graphic/in04.jpg, the book found at Lacis
