Finished: My Ribbed Lace Bolero

My Ribbed Lace Bolero by Kelly Maher is finished! This was for the Adventures in Lace Knit Along at Lazy Kate Creates. My first knit lace project ever.

I'm fairly happy with the results.

The design is simple. I like that.

What I learned from this project:

         * Elizabeth Zimmerman's Sewn Bind Off demonstrated on You Tube

         * Yarn overs, purling into yarn overs

        * Slip stitching the first stitch of each row for a neat edge

        * Knitting lace requires concentration

        * If I do another knit lace project,  I need to be prepared to rip!

        * There are loads of great lace knitters out there who love to share
           their work

Happy Adventures Knitting Lace!
