He looks quite dashing, don't you think?
Can anyone say "miaou?"
And while Biscuit may not have been particularly excited about his new chapeau, I was extremely excited about the new Jane Austen Knits magazine that came out earlier this summer! After hearing plenty of other knitters discussing their favorite patterns, I finally got to see them!
I was instantly drawn to the new reticule in this issue:
This pattern is the Entrelac Reticule with Bobble Trim (pg 86) and is absolutely adorable! I am definitely going to be trying this pattern out because I have not yet tried entrelac. The reason I like the reticules is because the Regency era is my favorite era, and I am always looking for new accessories to add to my regency wardrobe. Last year, I did a diamond pattern reticule which turned out very nicely:
I used it on several occasions with my Regency dress and will be entering it into the county fair this year!
As soon as I get my hands on some different colors of yarn to make the reticule, I will be casting on! Have you fell in love with any patterns lately? What projects are you excited to cast on or hook on (?) soon? Comment below to let me know! Happy crafting!
