New Collar

New Vintage style collar at LaceCrochetFinds this weekend. I did it! The hardest part was ironing the collar after the wash and getting all the creases into place. I even lightly starched it to keep it in shape. Once again, I am convinced that knitting a piece is the easiest thing.

My New Toy

It’s certainly not a toy, it’s my long-awaited purchase – a mannequin. I choose it after a long time and the main criterion for choosing exactly it was the colour of the upholstery – natural linen of a possible light shade. This was the colour I was looking for because I guess it shows off white, cream, beige collars as well as burgundy, navy blue or black collars. I spent the whole day running around the flat with this mannequin, looking for the best light, which I failed to do because the day is overcast and it’s raining outside, but I took a couple of pictures anyway. Now I have a lot of work – to crochet almost all the collars, take photos of them on a mannequin and upload them to my shop. Wish me luck!

High Neck Collar

This is the first time I have tried to knit a high neck collar. When I looked at these on the internet, I always thought I couldn’t do it, and wouldn’t make it. However, being on holiday in the Baltic Sea last year, it felt like it crocheted itself – that’s what a good holiday means, not only physically but also mentally! So, let’s keep trying and we’ll make it work!
