I have wanted to try crocheting with some lace weight yarn for a while, and since it is nearly summer and I found a single ball of Rowan fine lace yarn in the sale bin I thought I’d go for it.

I didn’t think working in lace weight would really be much different to working with dk and heavier yarns, but I did learn a few things.  Firstly, I needed to work in daylight because the stitches are so small!  Secondly, it is definitely worth getting a nice hook with a handle on it.  I already had a plain metal hook (thanks to my mother -in-law) which I got quite far using but then found I was getting a lot of pain in my arms and wrists.  So much so that I had to put this project on hold for a while!  I…

This is a wonderful written pattern By Susan Palmer.

I was honoured to be one of the test crocheters! :D and hence this finished piece.  Susan was gracious enough to use my picture in the pattern. Also, the best part about her work is that this pattern is a gift from her. It’s free on Ravelry.

Here’s hoping i find a customer for this so i can make another one. This was so much fun to make! Cheers!
