Lacey Days

I've been spending every spare minute (plus some that I should be spent on other things) on my Shoalwater Shawl. This is a lace pattern recommended for beginners. However, I found that it's not quite so much for beginning knitters as for beginning lace knitters. After a bit of TINKing (knitting backwards) between rows 27 and 31, I was on my way. My shawl is now knit and waiting to be blocked.

I also started a moebius from The Treasury of Magical Knitting. That's another project that required more than one start. I should finish it before fall.

Some news on the One Skein exchange. I found a great ball of yarn for my secret pal during the Yarn Shop Hop. I sent it to her a couple of weeks ago (it's been that long since my last blog) and she really liked it! I can't wait to see what my pal sends me. In the meantime, I'm working on finding the next great skein to be sent at the beginning of July.

The picture above is The Lacemaker by Vermeer. It looks like bobbin lace she is working on, not knitted lace, but it's lace nevertheless.
