Loving the Lace

Thanks to the blazing summer heat, lace has become my summer-knit of choice. As mentioned before, I've started on the Icarus shawl in a lovely alpaca, and have begun the Shetland Tea Shawl from a Gathering of Lace using lace silk from Hand Maiden (yes, I am shamelessly copying the Monkee). I also have some Schaefer Anne in colourway Greenjeans laying about, wondering what shawl it might become. Suggestions for that yarn are highly welcome.

Learning the circular cast-on for the above mentioned tea shawl made me feel like a new knitter all over again. It took me three days of casting on, getting my stitches all twisted, and cursing like a sailor to finally get it right. I am pleased to report that the shawl is now at doily-size, and growing quickly. Circular shawls definitely appeal to me.

Will post pictures of Shawls in Progress as soon as I find my camera cord.




Pictures soon, I promise.
