A Spring Update

I have been slowly plugging along on my projects. Here's a bit of a photographic update:

Katherine of Aragon is coming slowly along. I am working on the arm steeks now. Everything seems to go faster for me when I get to the sleeves. I guess because the end is in sight. By the way, I am so bummed about the news of Jamieson & Smith discontinuing so many colors. I have written a letter to the company but the situation does not seem very hopeful.

As for my Shetland Lace Stole, you might notice that the edging was not laying flat in the last picture. I ended up having to rip it out and start over. I have just about finished two sides and I am quite pleased. I will have to get it finished and blocked soon for some summer wear.

Finally, I have been knitting socks for my children with leftover sock yarn. After running out of yarn on the first attempt, I decided that toe up is the way to do it. My daughter dyed her own yarn with Easter egg dyes. Although at 5 she has trouble mastering knitting, she can still contribute to her own socks.

Katherine of Aragon is BEAUTIFUL! Stunning! That Alice Starmore creates the most beautiful designs!

Your Katherine of Aragon really is lovely. I don't do color knitting so I'm even more impressed that you have such mastery. Your lace stole is also quite lovely and I'm sure it was painful to remove the edgeing that wasn't lying flat, but you won't regret it once you are finished and wearing it for the Summer! Beautiful work!

Wonderful work! The Katherine looks just great. And the stole seems to be moving along very fast! Glad I found your blog. I will keep an eye on you. ;0)
