And Viola

My latest design is Viola, a crochet lace shawl.
You can find the PDF pattern here
And the Angel lace here
the shawl is made with 3 colours, but if you make it with a single colour, you will need just 1 skein of lace yarn.

Friday's riddle & update - 27th of Feb

A Gigantic update this week!

And the riddle is

You help to sweeten the bitterest of tears,
But your name makes the lips of the poor curl into hate,
whilst the rich were born with it.
You gleam like the stars when worked on,
But disappear into depths of unwanted junk when dull.

20th of February - Riddle and update

Lots of lovely sock yarns, including DARLING which is the new name for the old Alpaca/Merino.
And MIRAGE, both of which have been re-introduced, because you demanded - :-)

And this weeks riddle is..

I am the butt of jokes and I have terrible wind
I am literal,
I never see the silver linings around clouds.
I can’t wear glasses but I needed lenses
I love spinning!! Especially on my side
And don't forget the 10% shop discount if you get the right answer.

They have presidential connections.
One a movie star danced with a king,
One travelled to the land of the alpacas,
And another adored the food of bees

Friday's riddle & update

And here is the riddle

Its beginnings lost in the mists of antiquity
Its use’s lost to our children
Lost in our toy boxes
But still appreciated by those whose world is dim
