Broomstick Mania continues

I am continuing my journey of discovery in Broomstick Lace crocheting.

I love the variations and differences that changing the lace needle size can bring....finally my straight knitting needles are seeing some light! *grin*

I worked up two patterns over the past few days while sitting around the apartment "working" on Christmas presents.....I get sidetracked easily, although one of my creations will be a present to one of my family members (not saying who as there is a slim possiblility that they will read my blog....not likely, but one never knows, so nope, its not for you Mom!)

Here is a close up of the stitches and final view of my newest dishcloth, yet to be named (any suggestions?) Light as Air Broomstick Cloth (Thanks Vik). It was done with lion brand cotton, a H hook and a 15mm hook (US size 19????)


And the pictures of my newest Broomstick Scarf, which I have named Sideways Lace Scarf, including a close up of the design. This was also done with the H hook and 15mm needle and a Wool / Cotton / Polyamide blend.


Patterns are in the process of being written up and error proofed!

How about 'Reaching'...I love the tendrils that seem to be reaching up.
