Peruvian Lace

I should be getting on with all the other projects but I couldn't resist trying what looked incredibly complicated Peruvian Lace.  I don't think it's that complicated because I can do it and because most of the rows are just knit.

I'm still having issues with pics.  However, I think these came out okay.  Here is a close up...


And here is a pic with a compact disc to show size...


Here is a link to what it should look like.  There are rows of knitted broomstick lace and dropped stitch.  I shall be investigating the blog more closely.  The most recent post is portcullis stitch and it looks like fun, but I think I will definitely need to concentrate on that one!

I have just found another big bag of clothes that need washing for the church sale.  The bag had slipped behind the table, but I found them this evening.  They are in the washer now, but I could cry.  I promised to do another stall tomorrow and then next Monday and Friday.  It's awesome because the roof isn't as secure as they would like.  We've made a few pennies already.

 Bear's class are doing a project on African geography.  They are split into groups and bear and his group are covering Ghana.  I know nothing about Ghana but uncle has been there.  He was an engineer on oil tankers and sailed all over the world.  I know he caught malaria while sailing off the West Coast of Africa.  I went to visit on Saturday with bear and all uncle could remember were that there were lots of monkeys.  I know it was probably around forty years ago but uncle could always remember things so well and dementia has taken that.  He couldn't tell bear about anything.  He just wanted to sleep.

  1. Looks pretty! The colour is gorgeous. I remember when I was at school I did a geography unit on the Great Lakes of America (I'm originally from England). Wish I'd paid a little more attention as it's where I've ended up lol. Who would have thought?

    1. I love the pictures of your new home. It seems quite a challenge after Blighty. You never know when geography comes in useful. Thank you for commenting WS x

  2. I love to sew but don't know a thing about knitting. I think it looks great. :) A friend of mine use to do tatting. It looked so complicated to me but was beautiful. I never wanted to learn. ha.
