i'm knitting lace!
whaddya think so far? this is a scarf for my boyfriend's mother, based on the lace pattern i found here. she had this yarn in her basement and gave it to me when we were there over christmas. dunno why she had it; as far as i know she doesn't knit or crochet or do anything that requires yarn, but hey, it was a gift so i won't ask any questions!
i should know better than to try knitting something that requires attention when i'm not giving it! i was watching season 3 of '24' on dvd (in anticipation of the season 4 premiere on sunday @ 9pm -- yay!). had to tink a few rows (more than once!) cuz i kept ending up with the wrong number of stitches between my stitch markers. thank goodness i had the foresight to use them in the first place LOL then i decided to use a life line, which i just go hip to recently. i think it will look really great once it's blocked.
oh, here are some excellent tips to help with lace knitting. go 'head. you know you wanna try it!
in other news, i'm seriously thinking about signing up for the TKGA Master Knitting Program (scroll down to Master Knitting Programs and hover your mouse over each link to get more info). i love knitting and i want to be as good at it as i can be. i'm considering taking the "Hand knitting basics, basics, basics" program first, though. it's a preliminary course to the master knitting programs. i don't know when i'll have the time (or money, frankly) to do this but i would like to start before the end of the year. if you have experience with these programs please holla back. i'd love to get all the input i can before i take the plunge!
