L is for... Lace!

I've decided to dedicate this post to lace knitting. There are such mixed emotions with lace. Some people love it, others hate it. It can be an involved pattern that keeps you on your toes and requires your attention, or it can be a simple repeat that you can do while watching tv. Lace can be on socks, hats, shawls, scarves or mitts. It can be done anywhere in your knitting. It can add such a dramatic look or a delicate sweet style. Here are some of my lace projects:

  1. Excellent lace knitting! I adore the eyelet shawl. I'm rubbish at lace, but I think that has more to do with my lack of patience and attention than anything else ;)

  2. You made some beautiful lace items - such a talent!

  3. Nice lace! I just finished up some test knitting lace that I can't blog about but now I'm re attempting this one lace scarf that I've wrestled with for a while.

  4. Loved the pics! I like lace a lot, although I haven't attempted to knit it :) I do make bobbin lace though!

  5. Oh wow - I want to start doing lace properly and keep buying the yarn. Then I see what you have done and think I could never be that good. They are bearutiful.

  6. Beautiful lace! Thanks for sharing
