Sneak Peek



Knitting lace is plenty exciting if you're the one doing it (especially if you sneeze and drop 8 stitches!), but it's not exactly fascinating to read about. It's all puckered and sad. Actually, it vaguely resembles a manta ray - it even has a little tail! So here's a little preview of what the swallowtail shawl will look like. I'm nearing the end of the budding lace charts. I will easily finish that this weekend, and begin on the border section. I anticipate that this will be blocking next weekend.

I think lace is exciting...you knit and knit on the quiet piece then about mid way it "comes alive". Your lacework is beautiful!

I've never tried lace yet - its too "small" for me! I'll eventually have to break down & do it because its beautiful!
