My Creative Space

Not much in my creative space this week due to my sewing room being pulled apart to get to the leaky sprinkler pipes. All is fixed and hopefully I'll be back in there shortly. I have found a few moments for some creativity.

Learning how to lace knit, still working at it, going on my third attempt.


Discovering vintage crochet books from my grandmother. I may learn yet.

Please go check out other fabulous spaces at kootoyoo.

All I need in the world to feel good is the sight of circular needles. That blue is just right too. Can't wait to see more.

sophie said...

The colour of your yarn is just beautiful. I WANT to do the granny thing, I am just a doofus with a crochet needle.

Nicola said...

Lovely knitting, I like the colour of the yarn, wonder what you're making...

Leslie said...

I'm trying to make a scarf, but I haven't gotten very far! I'm hoping for some down time, without crazy kids, to focus my full attention! :)

My appologies for bad typing! :)

Jennifer Rose said...

that book looks really helpful :) I agree with people, the colour of that yarn is gorgeous

Lucy Bowler said...

Your lace knitting is amazing! And I can't believe that granny squares have been called granny squares for some time... I thought it was a new thing!

Michelle said...

The vintage crochet books look great. Love the colour of your yarn.

MissyP said...

I LOVE the colour of that yarn. I'd call it teal, but more green than blue. I wonder if it's my monitor playing tricks on me?

Alison said...

That is a lovely vintage book. Hope you get resettled soon.

Emjie said...

Don'cha just love vintage books. I have vintage music books that belonged to my grandparents. I love the soft browning paper and the old fashioned cursive writing on the front page to indicate ownership.

The books look awesome.

Your lace knitting is just beautiful. I'm sure if you can knit lace then crocheting granny squares will be a breeze!

Leslie said...

I love that vintage crotchet book. Do you think it is available anywhere? Could you share the details? It is beautiful.

Leslie said...

I love the lace; I must get my Mum to teach me. Great vintage crotchet book too!

Leslie said...

I don't know if it's available anywhere but I will definitely share the details. I'll do a whole post on it next week and let you know.

Leslie said...

a lovely yarn project you have going there...I too love the colour. Hope to see more of the lace knitting as you progress
