Knitting spinning and the “Amazing Lace Introduction…”


Spinning? Yep- 8 oz. of 80/20 merino silk. spun, plied and taking a rest before washing and drying.
(Pic is pre plying)


Plied Pretties—- Looking about “sport wt” to me… but will have my “Spinning Master” check next week.

Any guesses whom my partner (aka: The bane of my exisitence) may be???

A few clues-

1) It is a free pattern, available online.

2) It was not designed by a “bunny” but I THINK “bunny” every time I see her name.

3) It is a “stole” pattern with a shetland construction method.

A few tidbits about My “Amazing Lace Adventure” already:

I’ve chosen a pattern with techniques I’ve not yet tried, such as the picked up and knitted on border- (THAT should be fun….)

I’ve chosen a pattern that I’ve already attempted, but ditched.
(A glutton for punishment? Setting myself up for failure? Quite possibly- both.)

1) This yarn will be dyed- it is totally erradicating the lace pattern.

2) I have cast on and started this project no less than 10 times. (By george- I think I’ve got it…THINK being the operative word here.)

3) Either this project will make me crazy or prove me brilliant, the former being more probable.

As I am already a bit jaded, I thought I’d call in an objective interviewer to offer the “Laces” side of this story.

Below you’ll find the interview’s synopsis.

Interview with “The Lace”

Interviewer:
“Lace, Thus far, how do you view your partner?”

Lace:
“Well, to be honest, I find her trying- she just can’t seem to keep up with me, I’m afraid she’ll bog me down”

Interviewer:
“So do you have any suggestions for improvement?”

Lace:
“I’d suggest she relax, have a cuppa tea, some chocolate, and follow the pattern.”

Interviewer:
“Do you have any hope?”

Lace:
“There is always hope.”

Interviewer:
“Can you tell us why you’ve joined the “Amazing Lace”?

Lace:
“Well, I like to see knitters challenged to the edge of their skill set, then grown. This one has a lot of room for growing, if you know what I mean.”

Interviewer:
“So, you’re here to promote this knitter to levels as of yet unreached?”

Lace:
“Well, that, or drive her nuts, either one is good for me.”

SEE! I told you! She’s trying to drive me nuts!

To which I say, “BRING IT!”

I’ve made it through 4 repeats of chart 1. I can DO this.

(i think;)
