I've decided to challenge myself to participate in the Knitting Olympics. I finished Branching Out a little while ago (just scroll down), and I've done 2 pair of lace socks. I think I've got a handle on reading the lace charts now and, more importantly, on reading my work so that I can find myself if I get lost. It's time to move on now to a new stage in learning to knit lace. Kiri has been languishing on needles for months, and Flower Basket is waiting in the wings. I have wool for both in the stash but I have a new love.
She is "River", a stole by Sharon Miller, published in Rowan #38. Please ignore the completely fugly skirt this anorexic model is wearing and focus on the gossamer beauty of Kid Silk Haze. Unfortunately, the finances didn't stretch to indulging in
Crack KSH so my River will be created from the luxurious Madil Kid Seta that I bought on my yarn crawl with Morgan a few weeks ago.
This is colour 470, a luscious foresty green. Cast on is Feb 10 - during the opening ceremonies. River must be knitted and blocked before the flame goes out! Let me hear the cheers!
Notice to Calgary and area readers: Chicks With Sticks monthly meeting is this Wednesday, January 25 at The Knitting Room, from 3 to 6 pm.
