Lady Laughs A Lot

I cast on yesterday for Seascape from the new issue of Knitty Online Knitting Magazine. It's in Bobby Blue Malabrigo Laceweight. I love bold graphic quality of this design, it's doesn't strike me as especially feminine but it's lovely and reminds me of eyes from a Picasso painting, isn't that funny?



I'm just about through the first bit and ready for the main pattern. And yes, I did scan my knitting at work! And look, metal straight needles, there's something I rarely use.

And I've started up again on my Forecast cardigan, also from Knitty, but from a few years back. It looks about the same as when I last posted it, so no new photo.

I wish I had pictures to share of the 12 or so princess dresses I made for kids at my daughter's school this month. They had a medieval festival and my daughter's royal title for the day was the name of this post. Wouldn't it be lovely to be that person?

I love that shawl pattern too--and the yarn... The shawl I made with it is one of my favorite things I've ever made. Ever.

i now totally want to make that shawl. did you buy two skeins of malabrigo lace or are you hoping to get it out of one skein? don't worry - i am a copy cat, but i won't use bobby blue for mine!

Ooh, I'm making that one too. I love it! I happened to have three skeins of kidsilk haze that I meant to make Birch with, but got a little scared. 83 stitches seemed much more doable than 299!
