Between running errands and putting up the Christmas tree today, I have been cementing the details of my lesson plan for my first knitting class. I cannot say how jazzed I am to have the opportunity to pass on a bit of what I have learned over the last couple of years.
I finished one of my samples today, and it’s bright pink and fun.
Just for fun, my second knitting project ever.
I used it as a sleeve for my netbook while I was in school. It worked great!
Is there anything you want to learn how to make?
To all of my American readers, Happy Thanksgiving!
Don’t be afraid to dig into your feast.

I have never used lace weight before. For some reason I just never really thought about giving it a second thought. But when I was at Juniper Moon Farm for shepherding camp, there was a great big bowl of their new yarn line in the living room, and I could not put the Findley lace weight yarn down. Inspired thus, I came home and procured myself two skeins of merino lace yarn. (Pictured above. Dyed myself, of course, is my favorite wintery plum color.)
My plan is to someday, make this sweater. Because I am nothing if not ambitious. No lace bookmarks or skinny little scarves for me. Give me all or give me nothing, apparently.
Have you done anything with lace?
