Lace Beginnings

Now on to a new project. I’ve been drooling over everybody’s lace projects from Victorian Lace Today so I finally got myself a copy of the book and now I want to make nearly everything in it! Unfortunately, I’ve never knit lace before but now’s as good a time as any to start! I actually have nearly an entire skein of Rowan Kidsilk Haze left over from the embroidery on my Shriek sweater so I figured I’d use that for my first lace project. I tried to get a few more skeins but the dye lots were just too different so my first project is just going to be a long skinny lace scarf. I’m using the diamond pattern in Victorian Lace Today with far fewer repeats. Here are my small beginnings:

I’m using the new Addi lace needles which I really like. Having never knit lace before I can’t really give any authoritative review but I can say that the very pointy tips do seem to be very helpful.
