I've Joined a Knit-A-Long: An Adventure in Lace

I can't remember how I came across this KAL at Lazy Kate Creates.  The theme is Adventures in Lace. In all of my years knitting, I have steered clear of knitting lace. This KAL has inspired me to take the plunge into the world of knit lace.

I've chosen a pattern from Ravelry for the Ribbed Lace Bolero by Kelly Maher. I was contemplating knitting Veronik Avery's lovely Lace Ribbon Scarf. But, I've been knitting hats and mitts lately and a scarf didn't quite cut it.

So, wish me well.

Happy Knitting!

Welcome to the KAL! We're glad to have you, and good luck. I think we're all going to need it!

Yes, very welcome to the KAL! I'm Jenny from Sweden, and I guess I was sort of the first participant in the KAL (after Kate, of course). I love to knit, and lace is my current obsession. I'm in the 10 shawls in 2010 group on Ravelry, and I've actually managed to make two shawls already in January. So this KAL should be really fun, and I'm really looking forward to getting to know all the participants!
