plans plans plans

I love planning. Really.
I get super excited about it and it helps me getting through long days.

As I wanted to post this thing long long time ago I have started one of those, it’s Sea Fog! A pattern by the Lace Eater, which I mentioned in the previous post (I talked about High Country Circle, another planned project, sadly without pictures at the moment, so not listed here yet)

Printed out pattern of Sea Fog on a white blanket with two skeins of Lichtfaden Pure Silk lace on top, grey colourway with hints of purple and blue.

I’m using a lovely lovely Lichtfaden Pure Silk Lace and it’s so amazingly soft, I really have to touch it everyday. I finished the first Chart in the meantime.

A picture taken in bed, with purple and white blankets, a white fluffy dog is in the upper right background, cuddling against my knee, in the left upper part are my stitch markers and in the front you have my knitting project curled up, showing silery and blue coulours,, my floral blue and purple leggings shining through.

And here is what I plan to have on the needles soon:

Beneath the Moon

the prined pattern of Beneath the Moon and one of the skeins I want to use for it on the upper right corner. Everything on a white blankie.

I adore this pattern since I first saw it. It reminds me a bit of a pattern I did I guess a year ago, called Rheinlust, because both of them have a lace pattern emerging from a single starting point. I’ll use the new and sadly limited Edition of Merino Cashmere Lace from Dyeforwool. It’s a cobweb with 1400m per skein and it’s super super thin. So I’ll use it doubled. I tried out a swatch and it was super pretty. This goes in line after I finished at least one of my current WIPs!

A knitted swatch in really light purple on a white pillow on top of a white blanket. The swatch looks like a leaf on the top and has the lace patterning on the bottom, looking like a stem in this one.

And last but not least: the Hoar Frost Shawl

I’ve found this pattern on ravelry, it’s a fingering version but I wanted to do this in a perfect Lichtfaden Meridian which I gathered from a dear friend on Ravelry through destash, as I missed it in one of those rushed Lichtfaden updates due to the Boo Knits Mystery KAL. It’s an open lace shawl and I really want to go down in the needle size to compensate my sloppy knitting and the lace weight.
Perhaps I’ll add some shiny beads for a bit of bling!

Pattern of the Hoar in the back, in the front the Lichtfaden Meridian skein, it’s an silvery white with shades of blue and purple floating around. Just beautiful.
