You said I should branch out and try new things. I can’t give up lace, but I can delve into new areas. So, I tried two new things this week.
1) Knitting in another language and
2) Knitting a circular lace item.
Both went terribly-well!
I grabbed my size 3 new Knit Pick Needles, 1 hank of Dye your Own Lace from Knitpicks, 880 yards, and casted on. (after receiving the Legend and a brief translation in email) I ran out of yarn for the last 3 rows, but of course, this is me knitting so You know that I will always run out of yarn for every project I do. I’m okay with that now. I knew it would happen. I’m just very happy the yarn lasted as long as it did.
And of course here are the pictures and the closeups. I know, it looks a bit, uncircular. It’s my first blocking of a circle, so You will just have to deal with it. And as You probably know, my table isn’t a circle anyway. It’s a hexagon.
Oh, You probably want to know what it measures. Well the middle design is 24 inches and the complete ‘doily’ is 43 inches diameter. (Note to self, get a new bedspread that will make lace items that I am blocking look better!)
Next on my knitting journey. Finish up Danigirl’s play blanket and the Princess Wrap. Then I get to start the Mystery stole, finally.
