Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


That is a beautiful idea. I remember lace edged pillowcases that my granny made for my parents. I had them on my bed as a child.

Such beautiful edgings! I see even more adornment in your future. It seems like the perfect thing to do on a lazy summer day.

I know that edging! I recognize it! I've done it to border a place-mate in a much younger era of my life. I've also knit something like it onto a very old shawl pattern...

There's a repetition to it that is very soothing to the soul. It may seem like a slide into the ordinary, but hey -- it may be just what you need to set you up for the week ahead.

More Lace

Hmmm. Blogger and my ISP aren't talking nicely to each other so I'll take this window of opportunity to show off the next-to-the last of the lace samples. I have one more pattern I'm going to finish off - a more complex one - and then that will be it for the lace edging class photos.

I sewed the ecru lace onto one end of the towel - I'm knitting the other lace on - same pattern, same size needles. This goes much slower and I tend to knit more loosely so it's using up more thread. Sewing it on is much easier to plan and to execute. I wouldn't knit it on again, but I'm glad I gave it a try.

I've thoroughly enjoyed exploring this fascinating bit of the knitting craft. I am so glad I sat down and did these bits. I am so wanting a set of elegant bedding now, all trimmed out in my own knitted lace. Sounds like a summer project to me.

Off to visit the parents today - not much time to write and not a lot of inspiration either. After the most est perfect est of Saturdays the rest of the weekend has been a bit of a slide into ordinary.

Guess I've just got the blues.
