Chunky scarves and vintage lace




So, the good news is I am getting a new case for my yarn, which my husband willingly offered to make it for me, with tilted separations so the yarn cannot spill out  - you know the ones yarn shops have - well, I will be the proud owner of such useful piece. Because, I just hate it when I take a skein from the lowest row and all the other skeins above that one join in unison, make a nice avalanche and scatter all around the floor. 
I know the winter is nearing its end {or is it?} but I still have some winter accessories to finish. So is the case with the above two scarves - the purple one knitted and adorned with a vintage lace (yes, I've got tons of that gorgeous lace and have used it in lots of other projects!) and the hot pink to which I added an interesting corrugated design to avoid the monotony of the netted stitch. 

Well, that's it for today! Have a great start of the week!

Is spring coming? I certainly hope so. I could do with some sweet smelling spring flowers and leaf buds...

Your work is sweet and lovely as usual. Aren't you lucky to be getting a new case for your yarns! That will be so great!

Sadly,winter is still lingering these parts! How exciting that you are getting yarn storage! I would love to see it! The scarves are just beautiful, so fresh!

Winter is showing no signs of leaving where I live! Love the scarves, the lace on the purple one is the perfect finishing touch.
