As you might know, I am participating in Knit and Crochet Blog Week. Today is the day to reveal what pattern you aspire to create. The moment I read this I thought of all of the beautiful lace shawls I'd love to knit particularly the Valentine Triangle Shawl by Margaret Edelson:
Knitting lace has never appealed to me, because honestly it scares me! There I said it out loud. Even though I have tackled complex sweaters with cables and color changes, lace looks too hard.
I have tried to tackle my fear of lace. First, I joined a lace knit a long and produced a Ribbed Lace Bolero. Then, I graduated to a simple fan and feather shawl with my Multnomah. However, there were no charts, no fancy lace stitches, and no extraordinary concentration was required.
Having escaped lace, I am now knitting a cable cardigan. This for me is the comfort food of knitting.
Some day I will knit a lace shawl with actual charts...some day.
Happy comfort food knitting!
