Knit This: Mastering Lace Shawls »
InstructionsDo not let anyone interrupt you stitch counting. Go to your "Black Box" as Laura Nelkin would say.
Type of item: Accessory
I used Classic Elite Silky Alpaca in lace weight on size 4 needke. The colorway is Beach Glass.
What was your inspiration?
I was shopping at Nine Rubies yarn shop in San Mateo California. They had the most beautifully fine lace displayed. I could not believe how beautiful it was. I wanted to learn how to do it. They set me up with some Jitterbug sock yarn with some size 6 lace needles, and told me to try making a scarf in the feather and fan stitch. That is still one of my favorite scarves.
What are you most proud of?
This was the first time I tried knitting with lace weight yarn. It took getting used to. But I love the alpaca silk combination.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
