Thanks Gloria!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know that earlier this year, I learned how to use a lucet. You may also remember that a friend of mine made a couple of lucets for me.

Well, today, when I got home from work, this was waiting for me…

001 My sister made it! She blogged about it on her blog, Capricious Cogitation*, where she mentioned that she wanted to send me one as a belated birthday gift.

This little lucet is so smooth, so nice in the hand. You know that I had to play with it, don’t you?

lucetThe other lucets I have (you can see them here) have handles, while this one doesn’t. I was really looking forward to finding out which I preferred. You know, I really can’t say that I prefer one over the other. I really like how this one (handle-less) fits in the palm of the hand. I think if I were to be working with a lucet for any length of time, this one would be the more comfortable style to work with.

Gloria? Thank you! You can be assured that I will enjoy using this lucet.

Incidentally, the yarn shown in the picture is Rosarios 4 Tentacao wool (from Portugal), something that’s been in my stash for a long time.

  1. I've never used a Lucet, but I do think it was adorable that your Sister made one for you, and from what I can see, she made you an exceptionally pretty one as well. It looks warm and soft to the hand, so it must be very nice to work with. :)
