First Lacy Rose Keyhole Scarf

I completed my first lace project by knitting the Lacy Keyhole scarf, with Stephanie Japel on Craftsy Knit Lab.  I had bought this class plus another class by Stephanie the Circular Knit Lab: Hats Four Ways way back in Dec 2012, to give me some motivation to keep knitting.

Not only am I happy I completed a cute lacy scarf, but I learned some techniques on finishing my garment.  Techniques like seaming, weaving in the ends on a garter stitch or stockinette item and weaving in on the bind off edge, blocking and shaping.

I have to admit I have yet to block any knitting projects I did prior :-), I tip toe around learning how, but now I know how to use my steam iron to block and shape.

The most special experience was learning to lace, which I may never have attempted because it seems so daunting.   This project was small enough for me to see a quick reward and I am now looking for more lace projects huh huh that is how it starts.

Adventures First Half of 2017

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

NYC tour





Empire state building.






The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
