making minions & lace


Starting the duplicate stitch to make the bib of the overalls on my minion, and it's going better than I feared! It reminds me of cross-stitch (without the cross) so it's been pretty fun, actually. I would soo be done with this project already if I weren't attempting to keep it a secret from its recipient ... hmm... 


And the back is finished on my montague bulky lace vest! Woot! Woot! I've cast on for the left front piece next!

  6. Beautiful knitting! I love your secret project - I'm a fan of duplicate stitch - such a clever way to add colour without having to do the colourwork.

  7. amazing knitting - thank you for stopping by my blog. A newbie at crochet could make a bag it's just lots of chains and doubles, such a skilled knitter could manage it I'm sure.
    hope you have a good day x
