It seems so long since I've posted. I managed to get the BAS bookwork done, and as I'm still feeling in a rather creative abyss, I decided to take advice from friends and go back to something I know [well something I partly know]. As you can see, I've been knitting!! This lovely little table mat has made me feel very happy. I have been trying to get back to lace knitting for some time, and also extending myself by using graphed instructions. I've not done this to any great degree, so this is another effort. The table mat measures twelve inches in diameter, and used just one 20g ball of #20 cotton. The little 'prop' is a fancy pill holder. It has a china painted tile in the lid. It was a gift from myself...........LOL........[read - I saw it, I liked it, and I bought it].
This close up shows a little more of the design. I found the pattern in one of the many ANNA magazines that I have. There are so many gorgeous lace projects in these magazines, I simply don't know which one to do next. I will just add here that I started this on Thursday afternoon, and finished it early this morning, despite being away Friday AM, and busy with other things for much of the weekend.
