What's up with that??? All of a sudden I have gone batty to knit a lace shawl I have queued over 10 of them in my Ravelry, and really hoping to get stuck in pretty soon. But obviously for my own sanity, and so I will not end up pulling all my hair out I will be knitting in a Fingering weight yarn or Sports weight. My last experience with lace weight yarn left me seriously traumatized and I am not about to go through that again.
I have decided to start my journey of Lace knitting by starting with something easier so I have casted on Ribbed Lace Bolero in Rowan Cotton Tape, it will may a great little summer number to cover that part of my arm I loathe, so at least I still get to wear my tank tops without feeling exposed. Also I have casted on Branching out scarf in Regia crazy color a rather unusual yarn choice (color I mean) it's very vibrant to put it nicely but I am only looking to get practice for the big boys. On my list to knit are
Blue jeans lace leaf shawl
Diamond Fantasy Shawl
Tudor Grace (Scarf)
To name a few these are probably the more beginner lace projects that I have chosen, but you first learn to crawl before you walk.
As for yarn choices I am not really concentrating on anything to expensive, I am hoping that maybe I can use some of the sock yarn I have in my stash for these shawls but because these call for a lot of yarn I may have to find alternatives like Knit picks which would be within my budget. :O) Well I hope you are having a good night my bed is calling out to me to come join it so it's off to dreamland for me. Bye :O)

My Bad hair day hair I came up with this for my trip to London, my hair was a mess and I need something quick so this hat came into being. I saw a similar hat call secret garden but it was way to slochy and I didn't quite like the number or purl rows and the drecreasing was to basic so I did my own with better decrease.

|You Are Buttermilk Pancakes|
You shy away from anything fake, and you like meals with simple ingredients.
It's not likely someone would find margarine or diet soda in your kitchen.
Instead, someone might find a loaf of homemade bread baking or a soup simmering.
