All this talk about lace (and blocking lace) has gotten me itching for a new project (despite the fact that I have a million other projects I need to be working on, and I’m working more than 40 hours a week for the summer- Wheee!).
I usually am not terribly girly with my clothes. You can find me more often in flannel and jeans than dresses and lace. But, I admit- I’m a sucker for a gorgeous lace shawl.
There’s something fantastically satisfying about knitting up something beautiful and complicated- especially with beads. Lace shawls drape amazingly and are simply gorgeous. I don’t even wear most of the ones I’ve made over the years. I have several hanging on my walls as art.
And when I’ve had a bad day, I love ogling lace shawl patterns, and lusting after skeins of luxury lace yarn at my local yarn shop.
