blocking is a science

lifted stitches-diagonal

left my last set of samples wet  blocking and after a week and even though they are stockinette they do not curl back.
the above is a lifted stitch practice from the susan guagliumi book and as ever diagonals attract me.

this is card nº20  of my brother  890 . it's a lace 
pattern done with the lace carriage and before i started getting creative   changing the pattern
especially after finding this post.


 lace card nº 16 ??, could be adapted for a more contemporary look.

lace2    lace1

card 19                                                  card 18

these too could profit from an update.

on another note weaving smoothly; it's a good cloth this one :)
sewing wise i have already chosen the pattern for the striped cotton and a sleeveless blouse with a peter pan collar for this . the original plan was a skirt, but there's not enough fabric.

yesterday was  a holiday here.
on the spooky side, we still have the internet connection which means someone forgot to do their job.

    Belli questi campioni, ti farai un cache coeur da abbinare alla sleeve less blouse?
