I know, I know. I have been SOOOOOOOOOO bad about posting on this blog! But never fear, I have moved my CLF blog over to wordpress, and now I will NOT forget to blog my crochet and yarn exploits here at the Secrets of Yarn!
Here, I get to just be Laurie Wheeler and you know that’s awfully cozy.
Anyway, this cute little number is something I whipped up right after the CGOA regional in Portland, Oregon. After taking Stitch Diva, Jennifer Hansen’s Broomstick Lace class, I have to admit I have become somewhat addicted.
My little neice, Gwen, lit up like a Christmas tree and wanted to try this baby on before I even managed to walk into her house!
I used two yarns, a ribbon yarn and a sock yarn to make this. I have to say that was a wee bit ambitious, and got a wee bit annoying at a few places. The lace isn’t 100% even, but you know what? Princess loves it, so I’m happy about it. I learned something new, and now I’m gonna make me a brookstick lace skirt.
I had started out with that intention last week, but ended up doing something else (using the same kind of ruffly idea) for my daughter. Now I have to finish that project (yes, I will display here when finished), and THEN I will make the broomstick lace skirt!
