Endearment - Progress shots !

Am totally engrossed in knitting this beautiful pattern.

A design by Hanna Maciejewska , collaborated with my favourite Uncommon thread dyer, Ce as an exclusive kit for a limit period.

One of the knitting projects I loved
The lace pattern on the fronts is striking and well worth the extra attention in knitting it. It is actually easier than it looks. The yarn is uncommon thread tough sock . I've got an extensive collection of this base just love knitting with it. It has a certain crispiness to it , it keeps in shape, not too floppy and the stitch definition is exceptional. I'm addicted to greys and this is a fine example of a very light grey that is coming alive with darker shadows. Less is more here.

An interesting knitting detail is the hem which is double knitted so you are getting a think band with some short row shaping that makes the back hem wider than the front hem and with a saucy split at the back :)

 Soon to start on button bands . Have you notice those cute button pairing on the design?
Am now on the look out for buttons..

Will keep you posted ! :)



  1. This is looking fabulous!
    I am getting ready to start mine in the stunning pink. Any tops for a non lace knitter?

    1. Thank you :-) Don't knit it too fast at start ,take your time until you get comfortable with the lace pattern, especially at start where you have increases (top down ) !

  2. Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! I want to knit that, too. It is fabulous! (Susan, Caroline's friend in MN)

  3. Exactly what I thought when I saw it first, just had to have the kit ! thank you ! :-)
