Back to Lace Land

Hi all:

Back to lace land after a brief detour to work on a baby gift. I originally joined the KAL to work on a bead/lace combinaton for a shawl (my own design):


Koigu with Beads Swatch

I have about 6+" done. However, while working on the baby gift, I heard the siren call of Branching out in the new knitty.com issue. So I started that yesterday as well. I tried laceweight and dk, shown here:

2 tries at branching out

Then I decided I liked the dk one better, it's Royal Fiber Spinnery alpaca in Sea green. Here's a closeup of the lace:

Ever since I did a Charlotte's Web in Poncho format I've been addicted to lace.

I love seeing what everyone is working on! I feel so inspired.

That bead/lace thing melds so beautifully with that multicolour yarn... stunning.

Very pretty beginnings to Branching Out, but don't forget about your original shawl. It is gorgeous so far!

I love the colors in the shawl you're desinging, and how they move thru the stitches. That's going to be one fabulous wrap.

Can't wait to see the finished project.

Just gorgeous...love the green and I love the knitty Branching Out, too. But I do hope you won't abandon your original shawl, either! It's just wonderful.
