Alivia

No stashing today, but I do have a finished knit to show you - trust me, a really simple knit.  I know I say that every the time I post a knit project, but this one truly is easy peasy.  



If you haven't used a chart before to knit a lace project, then Alivia is the one to start with.  Although this project requires row counting, the main chart repeat consists of only 12 rows,  6 of those being a combination of purl/knit rows.


The Yarn:  Madelinetosh Merino Light - Thunderstorm

Although it isn't my most "impressive" knit of late, I really do love the geometric design of this project.  The no frills, straight lines and repeating squares appeal to my traditional eye for pattern/shape.  I can see another Alivia in my future already.

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  1. It looks so soft and lovely! I do so wish I could get the hang of knitting. I really have tried several times, but the fight that ensues between me and the needles.. it just isn't pretty. Someone could loose an eye!! I will just admire your beautiful work.

  5. Lovely, Rita. You have beautiful tension.

    I love knitting lace and you're right that it's much easier than in looks. Doesn't mean you didn't do a beautiful job. :-)

  9. Another beautiful Shawl Rita - they are a bit like quilts in that you simply can't have too many.

  17. I really love this. I agree, the geometric pattern is refreshing. You are making me want to pick up the sticks and get knitting again.
