Lace Knit Along

Now here is something that I am excited about! Kate Creates is hosting an
Adventures in Lace Knit Along
which I've joined. I am not good at knitting lace. In fact, I pretty much suck at it. It's one of those things that I've thought I really needed to work on. So what better way to improve my skill than join a knit along hosted by one of my favorite bloggers?

The rules are simple (you can't complain about these!):

1. You can use any pattern.
2. You can use any yarn you wish.
3. You must have fun.
4. Anyone can join at anytime - there are no deadlines.
5. There are no more rules.

Here are the patterns that I am considering. I could only get tiny pics of them, but I've placed their Rav links below. What should I knit? They are all so beautiful!

So I'm really excited! First, I've never knit a pair of socks that I actually liked, second, I have so much yarn for this type of thing it's ridiculous, and finally, maybe I'll knit some lace that actually had holes in it!

Those look like lovely choices. I still haven't decided what to knit yet.

I love the absinthe socks! They are pretty and lacy, and just perfect for the KAL! Pick a pattern that inspires you and you'll be all set!

All of those projects look great. I'm having trouble deciding, too. I'm learning to knit socks, so I might go with that, but I also found a pattern for a gorgeous bird nest smoke ring that I'd like to try.

I'm thinking of doing the absinthe sock, except that the yarn that I have is orange, not that pretty absinthe green. I'll have to come up with a cool, elicit name for it if I knit it! Or maybe I'll have to splurge on some more sock yarn (as if I need more!).

Hi- they sure look good all of them. which one to choose? nightmare some times, right?

Great choices! I think though either the absinthe socks or the shawl. The socks though and that color! I think I'm going to put those socks on a future project list for sure.

Woodland Lace Socks!

Do you have any idea how rare it is to find a lace sock with a toe-up pattern? Thank the knitting gods I've found your site and stumbled upon these socks... now if only she'd post the pattern.

I just wanted to put in a word for the Spring Forward Sock from Knitty. I love that pattern. It is lace, goes fast and fits better than any sock I've ever made. All the choices look beautiful! Happy knitting!
