Ok. I caved. This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my mother, but since I love giving gifts I couldn’t wait! I tried, and managed to do so for about 2 weeks. But then I just couldn’t wait any longer, so when she came to my house on Sunday, I dug it out and handed it over. I wish I had taken a picture of the look on her face. She knew I was making it for her, she picked out the yarn and agreed on the pattern, but she didn’t know I had finished it. I hope it keeps her warm, and that she feels all the love that was poured into every stitch. It was a pure joy to knit, and an even more joy to give.
Pattern: Haruni by Emily Ross
Yarn: Urban GypZ Merino Lace
Project on Ravelry
The name Haruni means Grandmother in Quenya, Tolkien’s elven language.
Since this was my first lace project ever, I was a bit nervous and insecure about it. I used the stitch markers that me and Rósa make under the name Little Lillies and Roses. It really helped to put them between pattern repeats! I had tried knitting the lace without them but I kept frogging over and over again!
Now, let’s hope I do not cave and give away any more Christmas presents before Christmas!
