Lace Knitting

I have started my first lace knitting. I have not really been interested in lace knitting until I saw this pattern.

I had to have it and I had the perfect wool too. I bought the PDF and was able to start straight away. Fantastic. I had to frog the first attempt as I kept losing my place and mucking up the pattern. But I am well on the way now.

Here I am sitting in the spring sun enjoying lace knitting.

This pattern is for a chunky lace using 8 ply wool, much more my style.

WOW! I am in awe - that is trully amazing. I mean it. I have only just mastered the garter stitch, which puts you about 7million years ahead of me in the knitting stakes! Clever, very clever.

Nice job! Oh, soon you'll be knitting lace in laceweight!! It's just such a magic experience I think.

That looks so clever, and so pretty. You are a genius!!
