I finished this a month or so ago, but forgot to post about it. It’s a freebie Patons pattern (Elegant Wrap is the official moniker.)
It’s done in Lily Chin Broadway with a strand of Paton’s Brilliant.
Quick and easy? You bet. For once, an easy lace pattern that I don’t need absolute silence to figure out. It took about five days from start to the end of the blocking, and I think it’s pretty. I love the colour variegation in the Broadway, and the Brilliant adds a wee sparkle.
That’s one recurring theme of my life- all dressed up with nowhere to go but Costco or the vet’s.
I had a quick trip to Calgary this weekend to drop Christmas gifts with Geoff and Courtney since they’re not travelling this year. I was sort of hoping to bring gifts back (them to us) but sadly that did not happen. I’ll be watching the mail hopefully until Christmas. I do not deal well with disappointment at this time of year. It stems from the year I snooped and knew everything that was under the tree and I have never had a more disappointing Christmas. So Courtney or Geoff, if you’re reading this, I will quote from the Fifth Element and say “If there’s one thing I do not like, it’s to be disappointed” and then Gary Oldman blows a bunch of people up. Merry Christmas, and send me a gift.
On a happier and better-adjusted note, I took a video today of Wallace doing a cute thing, but I can’t figure out how to get it into my blog. The file type is not compatible with WordPress, but trust me, it’s a cute video. Really.
