Lace Collars

I've had a lot of time on my hands this summer so I thought I would take advantage of that and tackle a knitting project that I've been wanting to do for a while now. I love detachable collars, but they are incredibly hard to find, so I decided to make my own.

I love the cornflower blue color...

I made this blue collar with some yarn that my grandma had given me a long time ago. I love the color and I can't wait to coordinate an outfit with it. The collar is a little big and almost drapes past my shoulders, but I think that it's cute.

The first time I participated in the Mori Girl Secret Santa event on LiveJournal, I received a beautiful ball of yarn in my parcel. For the longest time I wasn't quite sure what I should make with it, but I recently got some smaller size knitting needles so I decided to make a lace collar that was smaller than the blue collar that  I made.

...Also, the yarn was made in Norway!

The resulting collar is just the right size and I blocked it so that the edges of the collar were more pointier. I'm currently selling this collar on my Storenvy so if anyone is interested in buying it, please take a look! SOLD!

Thank you for reading!

Lovely! Admirable to knit in the middle of summer, I guess one must start now if you want it ready for fall and winter though. I'm going to check the Mori Girl Secret Santa, sounds fun!
