Lacy Sleeves

After I published my Falling Leaves Top, on 15 Feb I was immediately starting to design a new knitting top. I know ….. It’s knitting project again. I am not in the mood to design something crochet because I haven’t finished my crocheted blanket yet. Also I don’t have enough spare time lately. I need more time to write crochet pattern. Drawing all those crochet chart really taking a lot of time.

I did not do a sketch for this new design as I really didn’t have a strong idea how it is going to look like. One thing for sure is that I want to have long lacy sleeves and a v neck. After that, well, I am not sure.

I am using Baby Georgia yarn. It’s fingering weight and it’s going to take forever. When I wrote this, I have already working on this project more than a month and yet I am only starting my third skein. I am planning to use up all 10 skeins, so I am only 20% finish. Like I said, I don’t have time to knit lately as both my daughters need my attention.

From what i can see in the photo is going great. And yes they do (the girls) take a lot of time from us... I've started to try to managed my time in another way, making experiences here!!!

This small part of your new knit wear looks great already and it is my favaourite colour.

Our kids grow very fast, enjoys your time with them.

You are surely on the right track, your girls deserve a lot of your attention at this time.
The lacy sleeve is looking good so far!...I did my crochet diagrams manually and I think it wasn't bad at all :p
