The Lace Is On!

I am so excited! I have just joined my very first knit-along. Okay, I did join the Knitting Olympics, but we all remember how that panned out, so we are just going to forget that it ever happened. You should all the join The Amazing Lace, because

1) my friend Theresa is co-sponsoring it,
2) I am participating in it, and
3) it is knitting as a sport!

I am trying to figure out what lace item I am going to knit. I am thinking about Knitty's Branching Out, Rowan's Birch, and EZ's Pi Shawl. I want to make a shawl, but I am not sure if I am willing to commit to a knitted good that requires 300+ live stitches. I am going to do some investigative work tonight. So many possibilities, so much yarn. :)

Oh! Good news! I have convinced my friend E to start a blog (so she can join The Amazing Lace! hint hint wink wink). You should all check out her new blog, because she is faboo and she is knitting a Fiddlesticks Shawl. This is her second, I believe. Impressive I know!



  1. Thanks, Pam! The check is in the mail ;)

    Rachel and I are all about lace as travel knitting - something like Birch is so repetitive, and every other row is just purl, so it's great passenger-in-a-car knitting.

    So glad E is starting a blog. That shawl was gorgeous, and it inspired me to place my Fiddlesticks order.

  2. Blogger giving me fits again! I'll try this again.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog--so glad someone else will be working on the Sampler Shawl. I've all but ordered the yarn I have in mind--just haven't made that final leap. What did you go with for it?

  3. I'm thrilled to see so many knitters that I have actually met (okay, 4) on this ring. It will be lots of fun.
