A little update on the project I started yesterday after a bolt of inspiration from the blue (well, more of an internet search than a flash of brilliance!), my first Bruges lace.
I have used, it seems, a larger hook than the recommended size, which means my work is coming out quite open, and quite large. It is already the size of a small plate, and still has two or three rounds to go. It is going to be quite a size when it is finished, but I don’t really mind as I am planning to put it on the table anyway, hopefully in time for Christmas Day.
As projects go, this one has been surprisingly soothing, with very few moments of confusion or annoyance. I would recommend Bruges lace as a starting point for anyone considering a first crocheted lace project, as it uses very few stitches, is quite repetitive, and works up quite quickly, good if you are a little impatient, like me!
Finally, I have to say thank you to SuzJones for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks a million for the nomination, I know I need to put up a list of my own favourite blogs now, and will be doing that tomorrow, hopefully, when I have a little more time.
Anyway, somehow it is now 1:20 am here and I am not in bed, in spite of an early start looming ahead. Not clever! So I’m off to bed now, I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
