Knitting Competition!!

About a day after I finished the Covert Knitting project I joined a knitting competition on a message board community I belong to. I found my pattern, but I had to find yarn. Thankfully, I had just the thing in my yard stash! I chose the yarn I dyed using Koolaid back in July of 2009. I still love it!

Here is a picture from last weekend. I'm about halfway finished with it now.

Wow, that is so beautiful! I am trying to teach myself lace knitting, and it's getting the best of me. I assumed since I rock at fair isle that lace would be easy- lol. It was great to see you when you came down. We need to do that again soon! Vanessa

It was so good to see you too!

Don't let learning lace intimidate you. When I first start a lace project I have to work on it for a bit without any distractions at all. I also think it's easier if you pay attention to the pattern the stitches make rather than just getting the stitches.

I'm pretty sure I'd suck at fair isle! And I still haven't gathered enough courage to make a sweater or something like that.
