Lace, lace, and more lace

I can't help myself, I have to pass on this link. Oh how I wish I could fly to Oakland, Calif. to see the exhibit, but this has to be the second best. Pour yourself, a cup of coffee, tea, sweet tea, Scotch or Bourbon, or anything else you like, settle into a comfy chair and view all 111 photos or however many you like.

On the subject of wrist warmers, here's a picture of my fourth pair of warmers. The original pattern came from Compassionate Knitting by Tara Jon Manning. The eyelet edging is my contribution. I just can't leave a printed pattern alone. Written instructions just call to me to mess with. I'll most likely keep these for myself since I ought to be able to find them with such a bright green. This was a ball of leftover hand spun, hand dyed yarn, the maker of which shall stay anonymous (a clue: she lives with me and her first name starts with "A").

That's the new wheel in the right corner.
Oh, by the way, I also found the stitch for the previous wrist warmers in the 365 Knitting Stitches a Year Perpetual Calendar under February 8. It's called "Feather Openwork."
"Knit On!"

  1. Love the wrist warmers. The lace exhibit sounds like so much fun. I'll have to read further to see if it is a travelling exhibit.
