It has been a while since I posted any completed projects.
My "birthday cardigan" is n hiatus, that whole gauge thing got me. Amazing how quickly a quarter stitch adds up. Well I always learned best first hand.
My needles have not been idle. All the lacework shared here has impressed and inspired me. Here are a couple of my experiments.
The nightlight shield was my first attempt. Knit flat then "lashed" (whip stitched?) to the frame.
The lampshade was knit in-the-round, top-down. I used the same method of attachment.
Both are acrylic, chosen for its translucent quality.
just a word of CAUTION:
acrylic, as most synthetics, is inflammable. (remember the basic 'burn test'?) With my nightlight (7w) not much to fear. The bedside lamp is a compact fluorescent.
