Well, I guess I wouldn’t call it a rut, since I’m perfectly happy if that’s all I knit right now. My Ravelry queue has a couple of sweaters in it, and a sock or two, but it’s FULL of shawls and scarves.
I’m just fascinated with shawls lately…. I wear then whenever I can, and when I’m not wearing them, I drape them across the furniture so I can look at them. Once you get the hang of lace (believe me, it took awhile, but I’m a SLOOOOOOW knit learner) – a knitted lace piece is really a thing of beauty… something I really hardly believe I made myself.
It truly falls into the “harder than it looks” category. I still get a big WOW factor and enormous satisfaction from knitting lace.
So, here’s my latest lace obsession – the Lacy Kerchief Scarf, from Interweave Knits Summer 2005. I’ve always loved this pattern, and have swatched for it numerous times, but have never quite found the right yarn – who knew it would be as simple as Cotton Ease? The color is Lake.
I need another scarf like a hole in the head, but that’s not really the point now, is it?
