Belated FO Friday

Gram Branching Out

I don't have any NEW FO's to share, so I am going to go back and start posting about old FO's - cause I never posted about them in the first place....

Pattern: Branching Out on
Yarn: Elizabeth Lavold Silky Wool in Plum (1 skein)
Notes: This was my first lace pattern - once I figured it out it wasn't that hard, but the first time through it was a bear. It did teach me about important things like: lifelines and reading your knitting. I did knit this pattern twice - the picture above as a present for my grandmother and once again out of a true laceweight for my mom. It's a very pretty pattern and I am contemplating knitting it once again for me. I have only knit a couple of patterns more than once and I think it would be easier for me know that I have not knit it for quite a while - I just finished 2 pairs of monkeys back-to-back and finishing that last sock was difficult, because I was bored with the pattern!

Very pretty! I have yet to make that pattern. But I do have 1 skein of silky wool!
