Orangina

Here you are, presenting Orangina. At last I managed to post the photo (me not good in modelling).

Orangina took me about 1 week to finish. This is an easy pattern. I would recommend for those beginners in lace. I can even knit this lace when I'm driving during traffic. I think that is why I can finish it fast. By using Rowan 4 ply cotton (186m), its yarn saving too. I only used 3 balls for the XS size (103 sts) on 3mm needles.

Now, I'm off to another project. I'm trying my hands on knitting shrugs. I've choosen the IK Spring 2005, Bias. Here is the progress so far.


I'm knitting this with Online Sandy. The measurement in the instructions is way to big for my size. I've to figure out the measurement for my size.
