This is a knitting blog with a bit of photography thrown in. I do both with varying degrees of success.
I'll start off with my first lace knitting project. I recently completed The Shetland Triangle from Interweave Press's Wrap Style book. I used fingering weight sock yarn from Crafty in A Good Way. The colorway was Garnet and is a gorgeous, rich red with dark claret. This is lovely yarn.
For a first lace project, this was ideal. The pattern is easily memorized, so makes for a good take along project. It's also easily resized, which I did, in order to make a larger shawl.
Without further ado:
A closer view:
My next project is another Evelyn Clark design...Swallowtail Shawl. I'm using Morehouse Merino lace weight in a heathery lichen green color. I just cast on and worked a few rows to see how it would progress. I started with Knit Picks needles, but changed to Inox. Have to say, for this yarn, I prefer the Inox for the better grip. Wish they had the pointy-ness of the Knit Picks, though.
Okay. That's it for now.
