On and off the Needles

This is my first Lace project, in Rowan Kidsilk Haze. The scarf pattern was free with a purchase of the wool in John Lewis, Edinburgh. I am using metal needles which with hindsight are too slippery but I will persevere as hopefully I can control 38 stitches.

First Booga Bag ready for felting, the colours are bright even for me but I live in hope of some fading. Have yet to attempt the i-cord which of course I haven't got the right size DPNS.

My Strictly Come Dancing easy knit is Mac and Me in this very vibrant Turquoise Blue Sky Alpaca. Something I hope won't mean me missing any of the action!

Can you help me? I also have (or had) the free john Lewis pattern but I can't find it now. I'm almost half way through the scarf but can't remember the pattern - I know it was pretty straightforward but don't have enough lace experience to work it out. Would it be too much trouble for you to let me know how it goes - I'd be eternally grateful :-) If you CAN help my e-mail address is

Either way, have a good 2008!
