One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to knit more lace. I decided I wanted whimsy in my life, and the best way to get it, is to hit the fingering weight lace yarns with a bit of fuzz for intricate patterns.
I cast on a bead lace extra-wide scarf using a bit of a whiter version of the Rowan Kidsilk Haze, and while you have to pay close attention to rows and there are too many yarn overs and decreases to discuss, I’m really pleased with how the whole thing is coming out. It may take me years to finish this one–or er, months–but I think it will yield just the whimsy I desire.
Karen Hemingway’s Super Stitches Knitting inspired the lacy desires (which was a Christmas gift from Mum), since she has a pretty extensive section on lace patterns and her design of the book makes everything seem so appealing.
What do you think? Is it all about lace in the New Year?
