Lace attempt

Jason1978's picture

As some of you may know I had allready tried the QAL which, trust me, did not work out well for me, I still occasionally look at the pattern in sheer horror, I guess my knitting skills aren't up to knitting lace in the round.'s my second attempt, nothing fancy and I know it's nowhere near perfect, but I am kind of proud of it, now here's to finishing it!!! (somehow lace patterns bore me)


It looks really beautiful. Look forward to seeing the finished item.

Good for you Jason, you have done well grasshopper lol. Remember lace does not turn into something beautiful until it is blocked, you will be so thrilled the boredom will vanish.

Oh yes, what Dennis said! It's going to look like a lumpy blob on the needles and when it's blocked, will morph into something completely mind blowing. It looks great so far, and the color is beautiful!

It's the magic of blocking that truly makes lace great....

Lovely work, Jason. Blocking 'makes' the lace, but truly gorgeous lace is beautiful even on the needles. And this is beautiful. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
