My newest knitting project, courtesy of Knitty.com. The pattern is called Palette.
I've always been a little wary about knitting lace. I get all excited about some pretty pattern that only takes one skein of yarn, and then I knit about six inches, realize I can't see the lace pattern at all, panic, and stuff it in the back of a drawer somewhere.
So when I tell you that this pattern is easy, easy knitted lace, believe me! Totally unintimidating. Just do buy more yarn than the pattern says. I thought I could get away with one skein (this is Lion Brand Moonlight Mohair, color Glacier Bay) only to run out less than halfway through. I knit pretty tightly, but still.
The running-out-of-yarn hiccup kept me from giving this as a mother's day gift. Birthday present it is!
