Stor Lysedug Off Needles

TomH's picture

Finally got the Stor Lysedug doily off the needles last night. Definitely took a while to bind off the more than 1,000 stitches (picot bind off.) Recall I knit it oversized using #9 US circs.

The color of the yarn is actually paler than what shows in the photo.

Now the piece will sit until I have time to block it. Right now, it measures 39" across. I know it'll be much bigger after I block it but don't know how much bigger. I've never really blocked a knitted piece before.

So now onto my other works in progress.

Both the design and the colour are stunning! I always admire lace knitting; you've done a gorgeous job. I am keen to see the piece once you've blocked it up. I know what you mean about photography. If I knitted as poorly as I take photographs, I would have given up knitting a long time ago!

Thanks. I only wish I could have gotten a better photo taken. The piece doesn't really show up that well. Guess I'm more of a knitter than a photographer! I'll be sure to post another picture once I get it blocked. But my guess is that won't be for several months.

*grin* Devil's advocate/enabler here - you might want to get this blocked before you start the 96 row band on your "bugs" shawl... that will give you a good indication of how far you want to go in that band.

MMario - Can anybody tell me what year it is?

Good point. I'm on row 9 of the 48 row pattern right now. But then again -- it might be the perfect time to start your Queen Anne (before I start the 96 row pattern of Bug!).
