FO Friday – Diamond Lace Kimono

Happy Friday lovely readers!

Today I want to share with you my latest finish (which was actually done just before the new year), my diamond lace kimono, from Originally Lovely. I’m just so pleased with how it turned out, the gauge was actually perfect and I think it fits great. I even had my aunty (who was visiting with my grandparents) to take some nice pictures while we were visiting a winery.

I actually have barely taken it off in the last few weeks (only in the last two days, as the temperatures reached around 30Β°C). The only thing I was a bit sad about was that I used one skein that wasn’t from the same dye lot, and I didn’t notice it until I took pictures sadly. But I guess it gives my kimono character and makes it unique! That’s what I tell myself anyway πŸ˜‚

Have a great weekend!

  4. Character is in this year! My cardigan will have some of that, too. I was using a pattern with quite a crazy border, and I didn’t like it, so ripped to down to the ribbing, but didn’t notice that I should have recast on with fewer stitches (like 30), so I did a reduction in the center back that I swear is in the design….I’m sure yours was completely planned, you just forgot you had planned it!πŸ˜‰ It looks quite stylish!
