I love doing 'small work'. Things that are intricate and delicate. The top photo is Filet crochet and is made with cotton thread, using a fine crochet hook. The peach doily is made with the same materials, but without all of the detailed work of creating a pattern. To see the detail, click on the images to enlarge them.
Recently, I have been teaching myself to knit with the assistance of my very patient friend, Nona. I have only just semi-mastered the basic knitting techniques and have not even attempted my first project yet. That is...until now. When I spoke with Mum on the phone, she hinted several times about a knitted scarf. Not crocheted doilies. She wanted a scarf. Hmmm...sooo...guess what I've been doing this weekend? Yep. I started my first knitting project and I'm making a scarf.
