Isola has been ill the past week, and she's still suffering from a nasty cough that keeps us all awake at night. I've been home from work to take care of her so I've had a couple of seconds extra each day to knit while she's resting. The Malabrigo Lace skein turned into a toddlers cowl, I used a stitch that is referred to as candle lights but I think it looks more like narrow leaves. I made a background in reversed stockinette stitch to it and think it turned out fine, at least I enjoyed knitting it and the yarn was soooo soft and light. It will be perfect for spring. I'll try to find time to write the pattern down if you want!
I'm also working on a striped vest with - what I hope - a cowl collar. I love stripes, and look forward to have it testknit in different colour combinations. Isola seems to like stripes too so it'll be a hit if I ever finish.
I also had a vision of a toddlers top with a little bit of crocheted crocodile stitch over the chest, made in Malabrigo lace. I actually wanted a cold grey hue for this but my LYS only grey was Polar Morn. I don't know how to described it, it's not a colour that I usually buy but I still think that it will be great for that Lemony Snicket-ish look I want. Can't wait to start with this, will be fun to crochet a little again. But first, I have to have a go at that herringbone stitch!
