Swatch

Kerry's picture

Just finished a swatch of a pattern from Heirloom Knitting by Sharon Miller. The yarn is cashmere/merino laceweight (so soft) from ColourMart UK, and the needle was 3mm. I think it is destined to become the design for a scarf. The yarn colour is darker than in the photo.

Wonderful! And I got some

Wonderful! And I got some of my books I ordered from Amazon this week. 5 books on Lace Knitting. I may need your expertise once I start (after I finish the healing shawl and maybe a baby blanket). I hope you will help guide me.

Really, lace isn't that

Really, lace isn't that difficult. Just find a simpler pattern you like and give it a go. It's just really knitting and counting. If you can knit, purl, yarn over and decrease, you can make amazing lace. It might only look difficult. I'm sure there are some difficult lace stitch patterns somewhere. Just don't do those ... yet.
