I was never going to post a bunch of WIPs again. But I’ll play True Confessions for the Seasons of Lace group. If you haven’t heard of Seasons of Lace, let me tell you about it. Three of us got together and decided to set up a group for lace knitters. There will be prizes and contests and inspiration. If you’re interested, check out the Seasons of Lace blog.
So, without further ado, let me show you 10 lace projects, half of them red. How did that happen?
Waving Lace Socks:
A tunic knit with Rowan Denim. I’m almost done with the body. Then it’s just the sleeves. This one won’t qualify for Seasons of Lace because it’s more than 50% done.
The Josephine top from Interweave, Summer 2007. I think I’m deluding myself with this one. Unless I alter the top, there’s nowhere for the girls to go.
Anybody up for some beads? This is the Peacock Feathers Shawl. I added beads for bling.
And, a barely begun shawl from Year of Lace, a club I’m a part of. It’s knit with Claudia’s Silk Lace. It’s really slippery, and I’m going to have to string a lifeline occasionally, if I have even 1/4 of a brain.
This lovely blob is Irtfa’a by Anne Hanson. I’ve been getting some pressure to add beads. I just may!
Up next is another red project. This is a test knit for Susan Pandorf. Her version is just stunning and has a gazillion beads in it. The pattern for Iris will be available in June.
I love this sock. The pattern is Loksins. The yarn is Hazel Knits.
And, last but not least, is Katherine Hepburn, embellished with beads.
Oh, shoot! I just thought of one more. I forgot the Morning Glories Shawl by Anne Hanson.
I was supposed to let you know which ones I would be working on for Seasons of Lace. However, it’s not June 21 yet, so I don’t know either. I won’t know until then what I’m in the mood for. Who knows, I may start a moron project just for this! There are some ideas floating around in my little brain!
Oh, and Kid #2 doesn’t have a broken arm again. The radiologist that read the MRI didn’t know that she’d broken it a couple months ago. The orthopaedic specialist said the previous break would show up on an MRI for a year. So, just a splint, because she really did hurt it again.
And I spent $389 on groceries tonight. That should hold a family of seven for about 4 days! Just kidding. I stocked up on meat and freezer stuff. I really hate buying groceries.
Since this is the worst post I’ve written in a long time, I need to give up and go to bed. I’m going to dream of sleeping under a cloud of lace. (That’s a clue!)
