I thought long and hard about which lace patterned shrug I would like to make for my Mother in Law for her wedding. I love the look of "I Do" on Knitty...but wasn't happy with the belled sleeves.
I then thought I would just find a lace pattern I liked and seam it into the style of shrug I was looking for....but this left me a little nervous. I don't like seaming, I am not overly comfortable with lace and I was nervous about messing up something SO important.
Then I stumbled upon this little jewel....in a rather unexpected place; an article on lingerie!
It is a lovely lace pattern, looks quite simple, and it is exactly the shape that my Mother in Law is looking for. I think this will look smashing in the Handmaiden silk lace I ordered (mmmmm, silk......) and can't wait to work up a swatch.
With that in mind, I am adding some projects to the "On the Needles" section. This and one other, Monica.
I will be knitting Monica for my niece Grace in Knitpicks Shine Sport in Apple and Grass greens. The yarn was bought ages ago for something else, but I changed my mind (as usual) and now it is languishing in the stash. This is the perfect tank for Gracie and I happen to have just the right amount of yarn. AND it's going to be Project Spectrum green!
