It makes me extremely happy to see how many of you are looking forward to the release of Wendy Knits Lace next month. And it also makes me happy to hear from those of you who said that your first lace experience was my Summer Mystery Shawl and you are looking forward to more lace. I’m always happy to suck more lace knitters into the fold. (Insert evil laughter here.)
And hey — guess what? Potter Craft sent me two copies of Wendy Knits Lace instead of just one, so I will give both of them away in the drawing on Thursday!
They also sent back all the knitted samples from the book. Here they are:
Oh, sorry — I haven’t unpacked them yet.
On to current knitting.
I finished the unbloggable project I was working on so started in on the larger version of the shawlette/scarf thingie I showed in the last blog post. Here it is:
This is being knit from Three Irish Girls’ Glenhaven Cashmerino Fingering, which I purchased from The Loopy Ewe. This yummy yarn is 80% Merino Wool, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon and is wonderfully soft. This colorway is called “Strawberry Fields Forever. I’m using the same needle size as I did for the shawlette/scarf thingie — a U.S. size 5 (3.75mm).
I will be calling this pattern “Tango.” The little shawlette/scarf thingie is being called “Two-Step” so the pattern that will include instructions for both of them will be called “Two-Step and Tango.”
See what I did there?
