Notes

LOVE IT!

I am making this for the LYS where I have been working. (If anyone has been wondering where I’ve been, it’s at the shop!)

The truth is, I am overwhelmed with everything that’s been going on lately but I simply couldn’t resist casting on this coincidentally, appropriately named pattern.

In the time I chose this pattern, I discovered that the shop will be celebrating it’s 4th anniversary this week. Guess what the modern-day 4th anniversary gift is? Linen!

And all those times I said I hate knitting Linen? I take it back!


Out of all the needles I found that 24” Addi-Lace work best
.
Out of all the crochet hooks, I found that a Boye 9/1.4 works best. A Susan Bates 8/1.4 worked second best although I don’t know why they aren’t the same size.

This is my first time beading knitting. It’s not hard once you have the right tools and ignore the deceptive tutorial pictures that I happened to look at.

The beads are 6/0 but I forgot the color or brand.

Update The pack says 6/0 Miyuki Matte Iris Met.

I think they’re a perfect match for the yarn.

Mods I made the smaller size and near the end, it seemed like I had quite a bit of yarn left. I ended up dong an extra row or two (Went to 92 instead of 90) and added an additional eyelet row before binding off. I didn’t add the beads to the bind-off but now I wish I had. Maybe I’ll redo it. Jeny’s Suprisingly Stretchy bind-off is surprisingly enjoyable as well.
