Rosalie finished at last!

Posted by Nina on Dec 14, 2009


Back in March I cast on the Rosalie scarf… I knit and frogged half a dozen times because I didn’t like the way the yarn looked.. well I finally finished it! It falls just at knee length and is soooo soft. If you are a beginner to lace knitting, you might want to give this scarf a try because the lace pattern is easy to remember and uses a larger weight of yarn that makes ripping back rows easy.

The only mods I made to the pattern was that I didn’t seam the two together, I just continued with the pattern. I think the seam in the center would have bothered me.

most random post ever!

Posted by Nina on Jan 10, 2007

This is going to be, quite possibly, my most random post ever! Like I kept a log of the movies I have seen and the books I have read in 2006. My book list is amazingly small this year! I just didn’t find the time to read as much as I had hoped to. :( Anyone else remember when Chel, used to run Kaleidoscope, the desktop archive? I am still a member at site unscene, but they don’t seem to be very active…. but I still log my desktops, err… well… most of them anyway! The book and movie list do not include movies I have previously seen/read.. all are new reads/views.
