One of things I love about knitting is that it inspires you to give – a blanket for an expecting sister, a girlie hat for a new baby, a little bird for charity. Sometimes, I think knitters spend more time making projects for others rather than themselves – don’t you agree? There has been so much baby knitting going on around here lately, that I decided to cast on a small personal project:
This is the Lace Scarf pattern by Védis Jónsdottir, published in the Spring/Summer 2009 issue of Vogue Knitting. What an easy pattern this is – it is a good place to start if you want to try your hand at knitting lace. The only modification I am making is to slip the first stitch of every row, just so that the edges are cleaner.
I am using the ArtYarns Silk Rhapsody that I splurged on in May – the yarn is incredibly soft and angelic, and I love the beautiful blue-green color. The next few weeks are going to be very busy wrapping up everything for my nephew-to-be, but I will make sure to take some time and knit 5-6 rows for myself.
Happy knitting! ~Jenny
