bad memory...




I tried to remember a pattern
I found some time ago for a very simple lace stitch
can't find it so I tried to do what I remembered
didn't work



and I ended up with this
almost like the
knot stitch
but not quite!!!!


the light is once again really bad so the colour of the yarn is not correct
think
berry
purpley watermelony
really pretty
believe me
!!!!
there's a very short and to the point tut on the top of the page
 just in case you can't remember the stitch
!!!!!



and then we have the


herringbone stitch



on steroids




and the popcorn flowers
are
too


the yarn is chunky funky mohair

I'm still working on the doily
got eight more rows to go
I have to do it in short spans of time
the hook is really small and the pattern repetitive
doilies are like that!!!!

I love the herringbone stitch... but it's going to take me a (long!) while and a lot of frogging (I just learned that today lol) to get it right ;) Oh boy... but it sure looks wonderful in a tweedy type yarn!

i love everything that is photographed here !
the heeringbone stitch is calling me but i'm such a dumb with knitting needles in my hand !
i saw a cardigan in a japanese book all made with these little popcorn flowers... there was like 250 of them !
I don't think I own such big needles, but they are beautiful even as a decorative item
xoxo to you, M
please don't go to my blog these 2 or 3 next days(re. my flickr mail)
