Not that this project had lingered unfinished – it’s been patiently awaiting its turn since May 2007 until there were photographs available doing justice to its looks! A fine Noro Daria Multi metamorphosed into a lacy collar cum necklace, with a kumihimo-braided closure string, with macramee knots at the end.
The pattern is simply a knitted decorative edge.
For some time now I’ve been admiring the airy Lucet necklaces made by Marie-Christine. A friend of hers custom-made this wonderful wooden Lucet for me and I took to the craft as if I had never been away – never in this case being exactly 65 years. The joy is still the same although the hands may perhaps be a bit slower. I had made a friend in New York through Ravelry and sent the necklace to her, a very talented freeformer – her Walk Through the Woods (A famous play with Sir Alec Guinness, on stage in London in the eighties) resulted in a lovely project on Ravelry called Path through the Forest. Here’s my re-first Lucet necklace.
>My first post in my new blog. I am participating in the No Sheep Knitalong – my present project is knitting an old-fashioned type of a collar, made of Noro Daria Multi yarn. It can be worn with the closure either at the front or in the back (then it will look a bit more like a necklace). The Noro yarn gives it enough stiffness to retain its shape.
The finished necklace is in my projects on Ravelry and in this blog, October 2010.
