I Just Love Lace

In my previous post I've forgotten to thank all the compliments for my Lacy Wrap Cardi. It has been pleasure reading all the comments and compliments. It really brightens up my day.

I'm done with the Blue Lace Top which I have modified from Keitodama Winter 2005. As mentioned earlier it is a fast knit. I've modified the sweater to a sleeveless top with crochet as the border.

While I was casting off the back piece, I realised that the armhole slightly small. I was quite worried that later it will turn out a bit tight. Thank god after blocking and with the crochet bother it fits nicely.

I have started another project while waiting to seam the Blue Lace Top. I'm sorry if I've bored you girls, its another lace stuff. This time it will be a Diamond Lace Shrug. Progressing slowly. The shrug is knitted with a Butterfly yarn in sand colour. So, I guess this will be a fast knit too. This is the pattern from the book published by Ondori I bought earlier titled "My Favourite Simple Sweaters"

Did you spot it? I've got my new Spring & Summer 2006 "World Of Knits". Yes its out. Compare to Keitodama Spring 2006 this series has more designs that suits my taste. I manage to choose a few designs I like and might knit in future. You got to really check it out. Not bad at all.

Here the few designs I like.

I hope I've got some progress on the shrug to blog in my next post. Till then have a nice weekend and happy knitting.

Another lovely piece of work, girl! I've always preferred World of Knits and yeah, I think Brenda told me that Keitodama's latest wasn't that great either.

This pretty blue lacey top is just right for our weather. I like your modifications - sleeveless and the neckline. I'm so glad to know that the spring world of knits has nice patterns.
