Sorry I haven't blogged in a few days! I was at a family reunion for the past few days, and I didn't get a chance to get online!
I want to thank everyone who posted kind comments about my new pattern!
A lot of bloggers have been posting about honesty, and in the spirit of that, I want to say that I really love getting comments on my blog, especially nice ones, expecially from knitters that I look up to and from bloggers that I regularly read!
So, when I was gone, I went to the craft store and I found a hairpin lace kit! I had never heard of it until I saw it in a vintage 1950's pattern book, and I tried looking at my local stores, but I just figured that no one really used this technique anymore, but I found it! Here's what it looks like:
I know it doesn't look like much now, but you make lots of strips and then you connect them, and it looks awesome when they're all connected, here's a picture from my 50's pattern book:
Also, in the same spirit of honesty, I worry a lot about what I'm going to post here, I have lots of things to post about, but I never know which one to post about first, and if I should combine things into a post. Anyway, I'm learning as I go, and I'm having lots of fun doing it!
I'm Ashley, and I'm 21. I'm an aspiring knitting pattern designer. When I'm not working on my designs, I'm knitting, crafting for my Etsy shop, sewing, cooking, or dancing ballet.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
