Lake of the Palm Trees
Another day, another finished object.
Worsted weight lace knits up quickly, great for practically instant gratification. Lake of the Woods would be an excellent introduction to lace. However I would recommend adding stitch markers between each repeat of Old Shale, and keeping tabs on the current row in each chart (either on scrap paper or using a row counter).
Pattern: Ilga Leja's Lake of the Woods
Yarn: 3 skeins of Harris Tweed 4-ply
Yarn: 2 skeins of Fleece Artist Sea Silk.
Needles: Size US8 Denise Circulars/US6 for the final garter stitch at the neck.
Blocking Board: Works great, it's the best $12 I've spent in a while.
Notes: About the Sea Silk: I segregated this yarn in a ziplock bag with a hole cut in the end to feed the yarn through (because the yarn has a tendency to fall in on itself). Even so I had to untangle a yarny mess a boatload of times. The yarn has hardly any give because of the silk. It's such a lovely yarn though, I think it worked well when combined with the tweed.
I cast on for a quickie intarsia project in the Lake of the Woods afterglow.
What's the fun in a hobby if you can't be impulsive sometimes?
