designing my own lace.
And if I tell you all now, I can't worm out of it later.
Those of you who know me and who know lace shawls will easily recognize this as being an Elizabeth Zimmerman pi shawl. I chose it as the basic structure for my first design attempt for very simple reasons. First, I adore knitting circles, and the mathematics of this particular shawl structure appeal strongly to me. Second, it's a relatively easy design to plug lace patterns into - making it a nonthreatening sort of basis to build my first shawl on.
The yarn...now that's the truly special part....the yarn is hand spun....YUM!
That's all I will share for now. Hopefully I'll have a gorgeous shawl to show off soon!
PS. Clearly the Green Woman and I have made up. She's sitting in my orange chair right now, leafing through my gazillion stitch pattern books for some inspiration.
