sorry, no, not a post about a pron star. rather, i may have mentioned yesterday that i am loving knitting lace again. oh yes indeed. i am really feeling the love. its so nice to have my sock, and now my lace, mojo return.
of course, it helps if you pick the right project and the right yarn. without too much thought, i put these two together:
jared flood and wollmeise (hmm, now thats an idea for a movie…sorry, distracted). after my intial circular cast on angst, i am really wondering what all the fuss was about. look how its grown!
you cant quite see the pattern yet, but after the first chart i switched from the DPNs to an addi circular (which is nice and smooth but not as sharp as a knitpicks), and now its flying along:
although not quite right, this picture is closest to the true colour. i cant believe how simple this is really. lovely big charts
with easy to remember stitch pattern repeats. my only problem is wondering which chart to do more times so i can use up more wollmeise. or should i just stick to the pattern and have enough left to make something else? (first world problem or what!)
