I always love when I learn something new and today was the day! I learned how to do Broomstick Lace! I have a really pretty yarn that is variegated with all the colors on a peacock! Here is a picture of the yarn-it is made by Universal and it is called Reef.
If you don't know what broomstick lace is, here are 2 pictures I found one on pinterest and the other on google.
You use a size 35 US Knitting Needle and you pretty much crochet and add loops to this huge knitting needle. Then you take 5 loops off and crochet single crochet into the loop 5 times and on and on. I watched a youtube.com video of this technique and it was really simple!
I will be working on a scarf in between the 2 cowls I'm making. Don't want to get bored!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
