Lace Panel





I've been working on a self-made lace pattern exploring the difference between right and left slanting decreases and how they affect the look of a pattern. I worked 34 rows before I bound it off after deciding that continuing with a color change was not what I wanted to do. (I tried it for 7 rows and it didn't "look" right, not to mention the fact that the yarn didn't appear to be the same weight as the original.)

I'm unsure what to call the pattern as I'm not sure what exactly it looks like, almost like a strange vine on lattice work. Suggestions welcome!

Scrap Granny Afghan...Part 2

As you saw in January we posted some progress pictures to what we'd accomplished after frogging the original granny square. Since then it's grown to be a 6x6 square made of smaller 4 round squares and we just started on the 7th/8th rows (we add one row to each side resulting in 2 added vertically and horizontally). So far it's continuing to have a lot of character from what we can see :D.

If you're on Ravelry you can view it here, don't forget to friend us too!
